Recipe by Annacia

Here you have a verity of flavored syrups. Use them anywhere you want an enhancing sweetness to any degree you wish. Flavors are shown in the directions. They would make nice gifts in pretty bottles.Times differ for the flavors but I had to put something in the time slot.

What fun! I've made simple syrup any number of times, but never thought to flavor it with herbs. I used lemon thyme and a few leaves of pineapple sage. Wonderful in iced tea and also in hot tea. Will make more before we have a hard frost.
