Herbal Infused Honey


Herbal honey in a window sill

Honey infused with herbs is pure decadence! It is a simple and delicious way to enjoy the goodness of herbs.


Fresh or dried herbs: Lavender, Rose petals, Lemon Balm, Chamomile, Basil, Ginger, Sage, Peppermint, Cinnamon, Vanilla, Star Anise, Rosemary, and Thyme are just a few of the many options.

Honey (preferably raw honey from a local beekeeper)


Fill a clean jar halfway with fresh herbs or a quarter full with dried herbs. Top with honey, stir, and cap with a tight-fitting lid. Place in a sunny windowsill, and turn the jar over once per day.  Add more honey if the herbs swell and rise above the honey. Allow to infuse for a week or longer, then strain once the desired flavor has been achieved.

Enjoy drizzled over desserts, fresh fruit, ice cream, oatmeal, on toast with butter, in salad dressings, marinades, sauces, or as a sweetener for tea and lemonade.

Just imagine Lavender laced honey over freshly churned ice cream, Rose petal infused honey drizzled on luscious strawberry shortcake, Chamomile and Vanilla honey atop homemade granola, or Pear slices dipped into Star Anise  honey. Yum!
