Recipe Notes

1. You can replace the thyme with any other fresh herb (basil, rosemary, etc), vanilla beans, citrus rind or even whole spices.

2. If you want unflavored simple syrup, follow the above recipe but leave out the thyme. Unflavored simple syrup will keep for 3-4 weeks in the refrigerator.
