    French Tart's Note:

    A quick and easy home-made honey recipe from the Auberge in South West France! I use lavender honey so much in my cooking, that I thought it was about time I made my own - given that I have about 30 lavender bushes! As well as giving an amazing and subtle flavour to your recipes, it also makes a wonderful gift for a fellow foodie. I plan on making my own lavender honey all the time now, as even in France, it is quite expensive to buy. You can increase the quantities to make more jars - just remember to keep the flower to honey ratio the same.

      This was lovely!<br/><br/>I'd read in a book about tea time that you can warm the honey in a microwave instead, so I did that, and then returned to warm it (for 15 seconds) every twenty minutes or so until the honey felt truly steeped.<br/><br/>Super easy and super delicious.

      Very easy and turns out so good! Love the flavor of lavender in this. Great on toast and biscuits. I used wildflower honey.
