The Bourtree is in full bloom, and it is certainly time to prepare that wonderful scent and aroma for the coming months. We have singled out an incredible homemade syrup recipe that everyone will enjoy. Bourtree flowers are picked during sunny weather, and only those that are fully bloomed with yellow sweet powder. Be careful where you pick it, polluted places and canals are by no means a good option, do your best and find an unpolluted bush of this fragrant and medicinal beauty. This is a measure for approximately 4 liters of syrup, if you want to more or less adjust the scale to your needs. This means that for 10 flowers you will use a liter of water, a kilo of sugar and one lemon, that is, for 100 flowers you will need 10 liters of water, 10 kilograms of sugar and 10 lemons, preferably unsprayed. You will also need larger containers, as well as clean prepared glass bottles with storage caps. As for the “light” variant with less sugar, know that sugar is a natural preservative and that by reducing its size for preparation, you risk the later perishability of the syrup.
Ingredients for called syrup:
30 flowers bourtrees
3 liters of water
40 g of citric acid
3 kg of sugar
Syrup Bourtree otherwise
Soak the flowers called in water with citric acid and sliced lemons with peel. Mix well and leave to stand in a cool, dark place for 24 hours. The next day, strain the liquid, then add sugar and mix well. Leave to stand for another 24 hours, stirring occasionally. After 48 hours, the syrup is ready to be poured and stored in glass bottles. This way you can store it for up to a year in a cool and dark place.
