How to make fresh rosemary simple syrup!
This couldn’t be easier. Add your water, sugar, and rosemary to a small saucepan. You don’t even need a lid.
Start to heat things up, you may barely get to the beginnings of a boil. The sugar should be dissolved by now.
Turn off the heat.
Let things steep in the pan for about 10 minutes. Obviously, the more rosemary you use and the longer things sit, the more potent your flavor will be.
When you have your desired flavor, remove the rosemary.
You may need to let things cool a bit before bottling.
