Recipe Notes

Chamomile-Honey Syrup

In a saucepan, heat 1 cup of water. Add a cup of honey (we used clover honey) and stir until the honey is dissolved. Add a 1/2 cup of dried chamomile flowers and let the syrup simmer for 10 minutes, while stirring occasionally. Take off the stove and let it cool down. Place the syrup in a sealable jar. The syrup will keep good for up to two weeks when refrigerated.
