4 Meyer lemons, peels and juice
2 cups sugar
1 cup water (more or less depending on how much juice is squeezed from the lemons.)
4 sprigs rosemary
5 sprigs lavender
- With a vegetable peeler, remove the peel from lemons, leaving bitter white pith behind.
- Juice the lemons. Add enough water to the lemon juice to make 2 cups of liquid. Combine lemon juice mixture and peels plus remaining ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer, stirring, until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool. Strain through a fine sieve (discard solids), and chill.
