I have not checked to see that all of the links are working, so far they are.

Chickweed syrup for example.....hmmmmm?!
White Pine syrup is amazing and addictive!
Syrups are such an easy way to take herbs, especially less than tasty herbal formulas are much easier to take in syrup form.
I have read that real Maple syrup is a popular sweetener for herbal syrups. Something to consider...hmmmmm which herbs go well with maple ?!
I'm wondering if storebought REAL Maple syrup is actually real. Last Spring we had our usual ant parade in the kitchen, we quit fighting them years ago, to encourage them to stay out of our prep area I placed honey, maple sugar, and syrup (purchased from a guy who claims he taps his own trees ) on the counter near my apothecary area, they took to the honey and piled bits and bobs of stuff they had found amongst my jars on top of the maple sugar and syrup, treating the sweets like a garbage pile....they policed my apothecary and tidied it...blows me away!
I'm looking forward to the ants Spring visit, kind of like family coming to stay for a week lol
I'm thinking of making a bunch of herbal honeys - infusing the herb in the straight honey - rather than the way I've made syrups in the past. I have a jar of Angelica honey that is more liquid than the honey by itself, and which has already lasted several years. So it occurred to me that I could just do that.
I love the ant story too!
