Directions to Make Thyme Syrup

  • Place the sugar and water in a small saucepan. Heat on medium until sugar has dissolved, stirring occasionally. Bring to a boil.
  • Remove the pot from the burner and allow to cool slightly about 10 minutes.
  • Place the fresh thyme stems and leaves into the warm sugar syrup, pushing it down until it is submerged. Place a lid on the pot and allow to steep for about 2 hours or overnight.
  • Strain through a fine-meshed strainer that has been lined with a coffee filter or cheesecloth.
  • Transfer the thyme syrup to a glass bottle and cover. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Keep unused thyme syrup refrigerated for about 3 weeks.
