Homemade lavender syrup with 4 ingredients

For about 0.5 liters of lavender syrup you need:

  • 2 tablespoons of dried or 5 tablespoons of fresh lavender
  • Half a lemon juice

Preparation

2 Step 2:
Now add the lavender and let the mixture rest. With fresh lavender you should let the mixture steep for at least one day, with dry lavender about three hours are enough.

The lavender syrup is chilled for up to 3 months.
