DIY All Natural/Organic Flavored Syrups
You can really get it most places these days, but for some reason I wanted it then! Today, I was preparing it for freezer storage and wanted to use the excess so it didn't get wasted.
At first I was going to make ginger tea, but on a wild hare decided to make flavored coffee syrup! Mine is ginger flavored, but really you can do this with any flavor and I'll explain how.
For the base, I used the same syrup base that I use when making Baklava (without the spices- just the base).
You should start by boiling 2 cups of water on the stove with your flavor of choice for about 10 minutes. If I did this again, I would use a grater and grate the ginger in instead of the chunks pictured below. You can use cinnamon sticks, vanilla bean, even extract if you'd like. By choosing organic ingredients (or not) you can control whether this is an organic or natural recipe.
I hope you enjoy it! All the best, and as always, thanks for reading!
