Place honey and water in a small saucepan over medium low heat.
Cook until honey fully dissolves*, 1-2 minutes.
Place in a heatproof jar, bring it to room temperature and seal with a lid before storing.
*No need to bring it to a boil: We are heating it until it dissolves. I would highly recommend not heating it any longer as excessive heat can have negative effects on the nutritional state of honey.
A note on the Texture of this honey syrup: Be aware that the texture of this honey syrup is very liquid-y and that is normal. If you want it to have a thicker texture you can use an additional 1/2 cup honey.
How long does it last? Honey simple syrup will last up to 1 month as long as it is kept in an airtight container in the fridge. I am a big fan of Weck jars (affiliate link), but a mason jar would also work.
What type of honey should I use? I usually use local organic honey that I buy from our local farmers’ market. However, raw honey (aka “as it exists in the beehive”) can also be used.
