Use this infused honey to prepare Marcia Kiesel's Stuffed Baby Peppers with Yogurt and Floral Honey.

  1. 1 quart mild raw honey, such as wildflower
  2. 3/4 cup dried organic rose petals
  3. 1/2 cup dried lavender flowers
  1. In a large glass jar, mix the honey with the rose petals and lavender flowers. Close the jar and let stand in a sunny window for 2 weeks, turning every few days. Warm the jar in a microwave or under hot water until the honey is runny. Strain the honey through a fine sieve into a clean jar. Discard the flowers. Store the honey in a cool, dark place for several months.
