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.
- 10 cups white sugar
- 1 teaspoon alum
