I’ve been tweaking this until I got it right for about a month.  I LOVE using about a 2-3 teaspoons of this syrup mixed with unsweetened sparkling water. SO delicious and refreshing.  Also great in black tea.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

1 Small Saucepan
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Water
4 Tablespoons (1/4 cup) Dried Chamomile Flowers
Fine Mesh Strainer

DIRECTIONS:

Over medium heat, add all ingredients to saucepan and stir to get water and sugar to combine. Let it come to a simmer. This will take about 5-7 minutes, but you want it to gradually heat.

Once it comes to a simmer, stir occasionally, and let it simmer without a lid for 5 minutes.

Remove from heat and let infuse for 15 minutes.

Strain and push out as much liquid as you can from the chamomile.

Pour into jar with a lid and store in the refrigerator.

Yields about 1 cup syrup.
