Jasmine Syrup

We have a small jasmine plant that I planted last year.  Jasmine love the weather in San Diego County, and best of all they do not need much water to grow.  Right now my jasmine is blooming, the scent of jasmine is one of my favorites.  

  
When looking up edible flowers I discovered that jasmine flowers could be eaten. I also found a recipe for Jasmine Syrup at My Persian Kitchen.  The recipe is simple and requires few ingredients so I gave it a try. I will not post the recipe since it isn’t mine, but I did take a few pictures.

the recipe made about 2 pints of syrup
 

The syrup made with this recipe is perfectly sweet and has the flavor of jasmine. Now that I have made it I am not totally sure what to do with it and am open to suggestions and recipes. I hope to get Lynn to make macarons with it though.
