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 recipe for Rosemary Honey was featured in the latest issue of Country Living and it sounded like a fun 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, cook honey and 6 sprigs rosemary just until honey begins to bubble around the edges.  Remove from heat and let steep for 20 minutes.

Using tongs, remove and discard rosemary sprigs and any stray leaves {I strained my honey to ensure all nature had been removed}.  To decant, divide honey among clean jars.  Let cool completely, about 40 minutes.  Insert 1 fresh rosemary sprig into each jar and tighten lids to seal.
