In this post, I share an article from Sunset Magazine which reveals a delicious honey Recipe that is perfect for spring.
Hi, I am Gabie from Tea End Blog and I love reading (with a great cup of tea) and talking about literature just like Booky! Booky and I have teamed up to present an article entitled Long Live Paper; this post is intended to help you appreciate literature in all forms.
Every year, to show my appreciation for the written word, I subscribe to “paper”; magazines, newspapers, journals, you name it! Starting 2017, I listed all of the “paper” to which I am subscribed in an article entitled, “Long Live Paper | 2017”.
Sunset Magazine is turning out to be a real treat to read and so far I have been able to find some really cool articles to talk about under the Tea End Blog Series: Long Live Paper and Recipes & DIY. In the Sunset Magazine article cited above, I found a honey Recipe infused with Elderflower from Plum Deluxe Tea Company to lend a floral but aged taste to my favorite condiment; it really tastes great, and what is more, Elderflower Infused Honey also helps with spring-time allergies.
1/4 cup (or more) dried or freshly picked Elderflower Heads*
8 ounces fresh, local honey, or more as needed
Step 1: (for fresh Elderflowers) Rinse the flowers with water. Remove and de-stem the blooms from the branches and set aside. you should have a pile of lovely small, white flowers, free of bark, stems, and immature fruit.
Step 2: Loosely pack the flowers into an 8-oz. jar with a lid and pour the honey over them. Use a chopstick or knife to stir the honey and Elderflowers gently to release any trapped air and submerge the flowers in the honey. If needed, top off and fill to the brim with more honey. Secure the lid and set aside to infuse for 1 week.
Step 3: Strain the Elderflowers out of the honey using a small sieve, pouring the infused honey into a second clean jar and sealing with a lid. Store in a cool, dark place, such as a pantry, for up to 6 months.
