Recipe Notes

Substitute maple syrup or date syrup for the honey for children under age 1.

If using raw honey, the syrup will be good to use for several months refrigerated. The raw honey acts as a natural preservative.

If using maple or date syrup, the syrup will be good to use for about 1 month refrigerated.

Freeze what you will not use in that time.
