Rosemary Honey {A Homemade Gift}

Last night we had our December PTO board meeting {I’m the President of our middle school PTO … again} and I took a little gift for the ladies I work with.  This Rosemary Honey was the perfect way to use the rosemary still growing in my back yard {we’re having a very warm winter}.

I packaged the Rosemary Honey in small salt/pepper shakers bought at the dollar store.

Since the lids had holes in them, I sealed them up with my trusty glue gun and covered the top of each lid with a little bee I printed on my computer.

Some twine and a little label and they were ready for delivery.

Here’s how you can make a batch of your own.

Rosemary Honey

8 cups mild honey

6 sprigs rosemary, rinsed and dried plus more for garnish

In a medium saucepan over low heat, warm honey and the rosemary just until honey is heated through.  Remove from heat and let sit for 20 minutes.

Remove the rosemary sprigs {I strained my honey to ensure all nature had been removed}.  Divide the honey among clean jars.  Let cool completely.  Add a fresh rosemary sprig into each jar and seal.
