Lilac syrup

Another Lilac recipe for you to use next lilac season.

Lilac syrup.
Can be used in cocktails, with baking, and on ice creams.

If you want a little bit of sweetness, definitely try this!

You will need;

Fresh lilac flowers - 2 cups
water - 1 cup
sugar - 1 cup
3 - 4 blueberries to help enhance the colour.


Boil the sugar and water till the sugar dissolves,
Add the lilac flowers and blueberries, and turn down to a simmer,
Let it simmer away for around 15 minutes.
Keep checking on it.
Once it is done let it cool for another 15 - 20 minutes,
Whilst cooling put some clean jars in the oven at 120 degrees to sterilise.

Once cooled strain the mixture through a sieve, making sure to squeeze every bit of liquid out.
You don't want to waste any! 

Once completely cool place in the fridge.

I hope you enjoy making this as much as I did.
