Mint syrup


50 mint stalks 80 g citric acid 2 kg sugar 2 litres of boiling water


A refreshing drink in hot summer, but also excellent in winter, e.g. in tea.


Rinse the mint and sprinkle it with citric acid. Cover with 2 litres of boiling water and leave to stand for 24 hours.


After finishing the infusion the next day, take out the mint, strain the juice.


Add sugar to the juice and let it boil. Boil Max for 5 min and immediately pour into bottles. Cap well. The ones with screw tops are better. The syrup will keep for a year. You can also stir in honeydew between the mint. In my photo, one bottle of syrup is darker because it was a batch with brown sugar.
