Red Clover Blossom Syrup


  • Author: Karen Stephenson
Scale

Ingredients

  • 4 cups red clover flowers
  • 4 cups water
  • 4 cups organic cane sugar
  • ½ lemon or orange (organic if possible) chopped, (peel and all)

Instructions

  1. Put flowers and water in a pot. Simmer gently for about 20 minutes, turn off heat, cover, and let sit overnight.
  2. The next day, strain and press liquid out of flowers. Add sugar and sliced citrus and heat slowly, stir occasionally for several hours or until reduced to a thick, honey-like syrup.
  3. Can in 2 cup jars.
  4. This recipe makes a little more than 2 cups. I usually quadruple this recipe to share with others!

Notes

  • The citrus is optional; it will give the syrup an orangey or lemony flavor. If you want the pure Red Clover flavor, you can omit the citrus.
