So often it is easy to get caught up in the spring wanting to plant all sorts of great herbs only to have no energy or idea what to do with them when it comes time to harvest.
Here is a fantastic recipe that is incredibly easy to make and delicious to enjoy. And if you don’t end up planting these herbs, they are very easy to purchase at most health good stores.
4 cups water
5-6 whole fresh lavender blossoms
1 small handful fresh lemon balm
2-4 tbsp honey
Bring the water to a boil, then pour over the lavender and lemon balm in a quart sized jar.
Steep the tea for 10-15 minutes, then strain out the herbs with a fine mesh sieve and stir in the honey to your desired sweetness.
Let the tea cool down a bit (you can add a few ice cubes if you're impatient like me), then pour it into a popsicle mold. Freeze for several hours or overnight.
