Lavender Thyme Gelée~
I cannot remember where I found the recipe:( I apologize..
It was through Google..French..
It's a light jelly.. I reduced the recipe by a lotI cannot remember the exact quantities we used..
So here is the original..
3 liters of water
50 g of fresh lavender flowers
2.1 kg sugar(the recipe called for cristal sugar..I used our reg. white sugar)
12 g agar-agar
Plse note I added a small bit of Thyme..
Boil the water.Turn off the stove.Add the lavender flowers and the thyme..Let steep overnight.
Strain the mixture.. and mix the agar agar in the cool mixture until it is dissolved...Return to a boil 3 mins..Stop and pour in pots..Turn pots upside down until cool.. return right side up.
There's something about little homemade things in jars that I get a kick out of~
I like the light that shines through..and I like seeing them stacked on the counter.
I am afraid to say how many little jars also see the light of my fridge for a long time~
I decided to post this while you may still have lavender..I made it a number of weeks ago~
I hope you enjoy it..
