Crabapple Blossom Simple Syrup
Recipe type: Beverages
  • Crabapple blossoms (I filled a 1L jar)
  • Boiling water
  • Sugar
  • Materials: Sieve or cheese cloth, jar, funnel
  1. First pick your blossoms off the branches and place in a jar. Warning: inch worms love these blossoms, so you'll want to inspect them to make sure you don't have any hitchhikers
  2. Pour boiling water in the jar, enough to cover the blossoms. Stir and let sit for 2-4 hours to make your blossom tea
  3. Grab a new jar (or a large pyrex measuring cup with measurement markers) and pour the steeped blossoms in over a sieve or cheesecloth to strain out the petals .
  4. Measure how much blossom tea you have and prepare an equal amount of sugar (or just a tad lower if you prefer).
  5. Over medium heat, add sugar and blossom tea to a pot and stir continuously. Keep stirring until all the sugar has dissolved.
  6. Let the simple syrup cool, then use a funnel to transfer it to a jar. Store in the fridge.
  7. Add 1tbsp to your favourite carbonated beverages!
