Rose Geranium and Apple Syrup


In the previous apple post, I asked you to save apple cores for a following recipe. This is it!

On my front porch, I have taken the time in the past few month to grow a small garden formed of small plastic pots. Basil has been growing here for a long time, with seeds going into the ground to fuel the coming year’s plants. The cactus are old, a hearbreak old, the flowering succulent is another. The rest are either bought or planted from seed.

Early Spring I bought from the farmer’s market a nasturtium (that flowered for a bit and died), a different variety of basil than the one I have, chives, and rose geranium. They’re all growing so well, especially the rose geranium. It’s growing like crazy that last week I decided to pick a big bunch of the leaves. Mom adds those leaves to simple syrup for nammoura. I decided to use what I had and make a syrup out of it. I had apple cores and a bunch or rose geranium leaves.


Boil those in a pot with sugar and water and make a syrup then go crazy in using it. I’m gonna be maing cocktails. What about you?

This also works well as a gift
