      I have tried this same recipe in the past and for a nice twist, try adding some fresh blackberries to the steeping process. It adds a wonderful flavor and a great color. I recomend adding aprox. 1/3 cup of blackberries or other juicy fruit. Also bee sure to squeeze the cheesecloth when you strain the honey to get all the juice and flavor from the berries.

      We used to use a similar recipe in Alaska, except we used 18 large (about 1 inch diameter)clover blossoms and 48 large red rose petals. We thought it was a fabulous recipe and handy where it was hard to get real honey. We also didn't steep it more than about an hour.

      I followed instructions as they were given. Next time I would not boil syrup as long. Maybe it is because I was using a gas range. My kids loved it.
