I decided that we needed some here at home! I made a double batch. 2 cups of sugar to 2 cups of water. Brought to boil on the stove - while mixing so that my sugar would disolve. I poured 1 cup of syrup into my measuring cup to infuse with lemon. To the syrup left in the pot I tossed in a handful of fresh picked basil and put the lid on.
First the basil
Next came the lemon
I forgot to take pictures of the finished product which I poured into canning jars.
They're sitting in the fridge nice & cold just waiting for that next cup of iced tea!
What a great way to sweeten your tea without that clump of
undisolved sweetener in the bottom of your glass.
My youngest daughter and the hubby like a bit of each in their glasses!
I have extra basil. Thinking of making nut-free pesto and freezing
in ice cube trays. Stay tuned!
Do you make simple syrup? Have you thought about infusing it with something?
I have my eye on the lavendar in the yard. Wondering......
