Honey Syrup Recipe

Using honey to flavor cold beverages (iced tea, fruit drinks, etc.) caused a minor problem for us: The golden liquid, introduced into a chilled drink, immediately stiffens. We found that we could overcome this difficulty by mixing one part of water — room temperature or a little warmer — with three parts of sweetening. Now a bottle of "honey syrup" appears on our table for use with cold foods, or in place of other syrups for pancakes, ice cream, etc. One drawback: Our mixture doesn't keep well and will start to ferment in about a week if unrefrigerated. Which, of course, leads to a homemade Honey Wine Recipe.
