how to make floral infused honey
The process is simple.
1) You start by selecting your ingredients. Which edible flowers will you choose? And where is the best place to find them? Having your own edible flower garden is the best place to get your edible flowers, but you can also forage wild plants safety and sustainably, or buy them organic. I will link my suggestions below.
2) You clean and your plant ingredients as directed, and cover in raw, local honey. Be careful to ensure the honey is covering all of the plant material to prevent mold.
3) You let flowers and herbs sit and infuse for 4-6 weeks in an airtight container.
4) You strain your flowers and herbs from the honey and use however you'd like!
