Equipment

  • measuring cups
  • mesh strainer or cheesecloth
  • glass bottle/jar that seals

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon dried lavender buds (culinary grade)
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries (can also use frozen)
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup sugar

Instructions

  • Place the water, sugar, and blueberries into a small saucepan over med-high heat. Once the sugar has dissolved, add the lavender buds and bring to a boil. Mash up the berries while stirring constantly. Boil for 4-5 minutes and then remove from the heat. Allow the mixture to steep in the pan until it is completely cool, about 1 hour.

Notes

  • For this recipe, you can use frozen or fresh blueberries.
  • I intentionally made this syrup with less sugar than a regular simple syrup since blueberries are already sweet. If you want a thicker syrup, use an equal amount of sugar and water.
