Quick 'n dirty recipe: Douglas-fir simple syrup

1 cup rinsed Douglas-fir tips, removed from stems

1 cup sugar

1 cup water

Combine sugar and water in saucepan and bring to a light simmer, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat.

Add Douglas-fir tips and cover, allowing to steep for at least 3 hours. I prefer to just let mine sit overnight. 

Strain syrup in a jar and keep in the refrigerator for up to a week.
