Directions:

Fill a clean glass jar halfway with fresh herbs or a quarter ways with dried herbs

Top with honey, stir and cap with a tight fitting lid

Place in a sunny windowsill and turn the jar over once per day

Add more honey if the herbs swell and rise above the honey

Allow to infuse for 1 week or longer and strain once the desired flavor has been achieved
