How To Make Thyme Simple Syrup
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup of fresh thyme leaves and stems
  1. In a small saucepan place one cup of water and one cup of sugar.
  2. On medium heat bring to a simmer. Simmer until the sugar has completely dissolved. Remove the saucepan from the heat.
  3. Put the fresh thyme stems and leaves into the pot and push down with the back of a spoon until the fresh thyme is covered with the liquid.
  4. Steep for one or two hours.
  5. Strain the syrup through a fine mesh strainer that has been lined with a coffee filter to remove the plant material.
  6. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
