The following Honey Thyme Syrup recipe is super simple and provides a delicious vehicle for adding a little flavor along with sweetness. The Thyme element is sedate, serving as an accent, not the main notes.
- In a small saucepan combine the honey, water, and thyme.
- Bring to a low boil and then reduce the heat to low. Simmer 10 minutes.
- Remove from the heat and let cool completely before using.
