If you are not a cook don’t worry! This is an EASY recipe, that you can have ready quickly and easily!
Add your lavender buds and water to a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium to low heat. (since this is only one cup of water this should happen quickly) Reduce heat once boil is reached, cover, and let boil happen for 5 miutes.
Using a strainer or collander (a fine mesh metal one is ideal since the water is hot and the buds are small). Strain your buds out of your water. Make sure to strain the water into a useable container. You want to keep the water and discard the spent lavender buds. Return your water back to your sauce pan.
Now that your lavender essence has been captured in your water it is time to make your simple syrup. You should have about 1 cup of water from the 1 and 1/4 cup you had previously.
Return your water to your saucepan. Add your sugar to your water and thoroughly mix over medium/low heat. Bring to a boil. Stir slowly until the sugar has completely dissolved!
Turn off the heat and let cool down to room temperature and then put the syrup into an air-tight container.
You are done!
