4. Strain buds out of water

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.

5. Make your simple syrup!

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!
