How to make lavender lozenges

Method

Infuse 30g of dried lavendula flowers in 300 ml of boiling water for five minutes. Strain and press.

Measure the volume of liquid obtained, and add double the quantity of sugar e.g. for 250ml liquid add 500g sugar

Add 1 tsp cream of tartar.

Dissolve over low heat while stirring. Bring to gentle boil, careful not to go over 150oC

DO NOT STIR once boiling. Boil until mixture is straw coloured or when drips of mixture harden like toffee when added to cold water.

Pour into moulds lightly oiled or into paper patty pans.
