Method

Rosemary Infused Raw Honey

 

GLASS JAR or Mason Jar  – 1 cup capacity.

 

ROSEMARY LEAVES pull off the central woody stem. FILL JAR ¾ full of leaves – press down to pack lightly.

 

POUR over raw honey.  With a skewer or teaspoon, gently and slowly move around the leaves to ensure that honey fills every part of the jar and that there are no gaps or air pockets – gentle tap jar base then press down rosemary & tap a repeat few times.

 

TOP OFF jar with honey filling almost to the top rim.  Tap base on the counter gently to ensure every last air bubble is out. 

 

LID-ON – label & date jar and store in a cool dark place to infuse.  I like to infuse my honey for 2 lunar cycles or 8 weeks before using it. 4 weeks is the minimum.  Personally, I do not strain out the rosemary; I leave it in the jar and spoon out the honey as needed.

 

 

USES –  Culinary & Medicinal   
drizzle over fruit platters, cereals, yoghurts, desserts.
as a spread as you would regular honey.  
in salad dressings, vinaigrettes.

MEDICINAL PROPERTIES.     

  • ROSEMARY is known for • Anti-Inflammatory • Digestive • Nervous System Tonic • Anti-microbial • Boost Memory
  • HONEY • Natural Antibiotic • Prebiotic Food • Skin healing • Antioxidant & Enzyme Rich • Soothing

 

WINTER TONIC – a great tonic to have on hand during the cold & flu season.

 

MELTING CANDIED RAW HONEY – gently warm on the stove until just warm and beginning to melt.  Set the jar in a warm safe place to melt.  PLACE glass jar in a pot of hot water.

 

PRESERVE all the flavours and medicinal properties of raw honey use low warming heat, not high heat. Stir into hot water & tea don’t pour boiling water over raw honey.

 

STORE LONG TERM – In my experience, infused raw honey does not candy completely due to the plants’ natural water & essential oil content; you can store Rosemary Infused Honey with the plant material for a long time – flavour and essential oils content may alter over time.
