How to make cinnamon honey
This year, the osmanthus flowers bloomed for the second time, there are a total of one to twenty osmanthus trees in the community and beyond, the fragrance of osmanthus everywhere, smelling this smell, thankful heart – it is good to be alive!
Pick the osmanthus flowers the day after they open (osmanthus flowers last longer, but the first three days are the freshest), as gently as possible without damaging the flowers.
Divide the flowers into small piles, sifting out the small impurities first, then picking up the big ones (such as flower shells, stalks, etc.). This process is quite a test of patience oh.
Wash the flowers with cold water prepared in advance (action should also be gentle).
Blow dry quickly with a fan (too long flowers tend to discolor and not look good, and the fragrance will dissipate more, so hurry up oh)
The honey from Crown Heights is very fresh dated. One layer of honey and one layer of flowers to fill the jar. (The jars had to be washed, sterilized and dried beforehand)
This is the morning of October 18, just as it was done.
Took it out today to replace the new sealed glass jars I bought. It’s a great look! You can eat it in another week (actually, you can eat it now, but the flavor will be more mellow and sweet with a longer infusion).
This is the sugar cinnamon (Tanqueray version).
Twin cinnamon sisters, haha.
The first thing you need to do is turn the jar upside down to let the honey soak through the cinnamon.
