  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup honey
  1. Place honey and water in a pan and cook on low until honey is dissolved.

  2. Allow to fully cool and place in an air-tight container in the fridge.

Recipe Notes

I prefer to cook the water and honey on low heat because I use raw honey. Heating raw honey at too high of a temperature can kill the awesome beneficial properties, so go low and slow!

Want to make your syrup a bit sweeter? Just adjust the ratios so it is 1:1 for honey and water.
