A very simple preparation, and it makes a lovely gift with some fresh muffins. Try it drizzled over goat cheese with some herbed crackers for a sweet/savory appetizer or dessert.
3 sprigs rosemary
6 inch orange peel ; no pith
1 1/2 cups honey
Gently bruise herbs. Place herbs and peel in small saucepan, add honey. Stir and heat only until lukewarm, 3-4 minutes. Pour into sterilized jar and seal. Store at room temperature for one week to develop flavors. Re heat just to liquefy, strain out herbs. Re-seal, adding a fresh, decorative sprig if desired.
Try with 2 tablespoons lavender blossoms; or cinnamon, allspice, and cloves; lemon peel and thyme.
