“A quick and easy home-made honey recipe from the Auberge in South West France! I use lavender honey so much in my cooking, that I thought it was about time I made my own - given that I have about 30 lavender bushes! As well as giving an amazing and subtle flavour to your recipes, it also makes a wonderful gift for a fellow foodie. I plan on making my own lavender honey all the time now, as even in France, it is quite expensive to buy. You can increase the quantities to make more jars - just remember to keep the flower to honey ratio the same.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 ounces light honey, such as flower honey or, clover honey

Directions

  1. Heat honey in a bowl over boiling water (a bain-marie) until very hot, but NOT boiling, then add the lavender flowers and stir well.
  2. Continue to heat over a low heat for 30 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool a little before covering with a net or fly cover and placing in the sun for about 3 to 4 hours.
