DIRECTIONS

  • Dissolve sugar in water in heavy pan over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
  • Bring to boil, add lemon juice and boil over medium-low heat for 12 minutes. Once syrup has begun to boil, do not stir again, as this makes the syrup cloudy.
  • Add orange blossom water (or rose water), boil 30 seconds longer. When cool, the consistency should be similar to thin honey.
  • Cool and store in a sealed glass container in the refrigerator for several weeks.
