R is for Rosemary Syrup

I love this rosemary syrup in my coffee with a spot of frothed up milk. I am sadly missing my Bodum milk frother as I broke the glass part last week. Yes I know, I am a clumsy klutz, but washing up liquid makes stuff slippy and easily dropped….
On a brighter note, here is the Rosemary syrup recipe to share. I have Kaldi’s to thank for the idea! Their rosemary and brown sugar latte is divine!

Rosemary Syrup

In a pan, add 1 cup water, 1 cup brown sugar, a dash of vanilla extract and about 5 sprigs of fresh rosemary.
Simmer to dissolve the sugar and heat gently for about 10 minutes. Leave in the pan for about 15 minutes once the heat is off. Store in a jar you have emptied of jam or something else which leaves a pretty jar to refill. No point in buying jars when we can recycle a few.

Hopefully my rosemary plants will soldier through the winter inside, looking out the back window into the garden. They should keep me in lovely rosemary syrup all winter.

Talking of soldiers, look who we found staring up out of the mud and mulch in the woods this morning.

He has been through the chipper, but he has such a lovely little face when we brought him home and washed him up.
