Lemon Honey Syrup (thanks to bettycrocker.com)
1 C clover honey
1/2 lemon, thinly sliced
Mix the honey and lemon slices in a small saucepan. Warm over medium heat, stirring occasionally until thoroughly heated. Remove lemon before serving.
(see how easy that was?!)
*FYI* This is delicious both warm and cold.
The next 'syrup' is chock full of blueberry flavor, accented by a hint of orange - yum. I would have been happy with a little more orange juice in this recipe, but it worked wonderfully and the flavors are bright and fresh.
Blueberry Orange Syrup (adapted from bettycrocker.com)
3 Tbsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp cornstarch
3 Tbsp orange juice
1/4 tsp orange zest (I used the zest of half a small orange)
2 C fresh or frozen (unsweetened) blueberries
Stir everything but the blueberries together in a medium saucepan until smooth. Stir in the blueberries. Heat to bubbling over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until nice and thick. Serve warm.
