Making syrup is the first step in making sorbet, which is partly what I had in mind when making this batch.
For the recipe you need dried food grade lavender, which can be found in independent health food stores (I believe that Suma distribute it). I used 50g, which cost under a pound. I could probably have gotten away with using less, but as usual I was making it up as I went along :)
- 50g Dried Lavender
- 500ml Water
- 250g White Sugar
- Lemon Juice
Strain the mixture and add lemon juice to taste. Bottle and keep in the fridge.
Serve with lemonade or use in cocktails. A little goes a long way.
