I’ve been searching for dried lavender to try lavender syrup as a sweetener, but for the life of me… I haven’t been able to find it, I don’t think its available in Guatemala. If anyone knows where I can find some here, let us know!
1 cup water
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup fresh basil
- Bring water and sugar to a boil in a small saucepan, stirring until sugar dissolves.
- Remove from heat, add basil, and let steep for 10 minutes.
- Remove the basil with a slotted spoon of with a strainer. You can keep the syrup in the fridge to use as a single serving sweetner, or use it to sweeten a pitcher of iced tea or lemonade.
