The blooming bright yellow flowers of the forsythia shrub is one of the first signs of spring, but not everyone knows that the blossoms are edible! Make this forsythia syrup with honey for a delicious spring treat.
Put the forsythia flowers in a half pint jar. Bring the water to a boil and pour over the flowers. Let the flower tea steep for several hours or overnight, until it has completely cooled to room temperature.
Strain the flowers, then stir the honey into the tea. Add more or less honey to taste depending on desired sweetness level.
Store in the refrigerator and it will keep for 3-4 weeks.
