It’s been a long time since I’ve had a blog…but as of late, I have been finding so many things I want to share (or just keep track of for myself). I hope you find some inspiration here…some fun recipes…some good quotes….I can’t promise anything. I’m a visual artist because I’m not good at writing…but here goes…
I found this recipie and it looks so refreshing for the summer heat we’ve been having…
Lavender Honey Lemonade
1 cup honey
5 cups water
1 tablespoon dried culinary lavender (or 1/4 cup fresh lavender blossoms)
1 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice, strained
Lavender sprigs for garnish
Combine honey with 2 1/2 cups water in a medium pan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring to dissolve the honey.
Add the lavender to the honey water, cover, and remove from heat. Let stand at least 20 minutes (and up to several hours).
Strain mixture and discard lavender. Pour infusion into a glass pitcher. Add lemon juice and another 2 1/2 cups of cold water. Stir well.
Refrigerate until ready to use, or pour into tall glasses half-filled with ice, then garnish with lavender sprigs.
