Complexly flavored, yet balanced, this simple syrup adds a unique twist to drinks, marinades, and desserts.



Whisk Vanilla Bean Sugar and water together in a small saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring to make sure sugar dissolves, and cook for 1 to 2 min. Remove from heat and add cardamom seeds, Urfa and Fleur de Sel. Cover and allow mixture to steep until room temperature, about 20 min. Strain and store in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Use within 2 weeks.

I work at the Savory Spice Shop in Franklin, Tn. I fell in love with our Urfa Chili's a few weeks ago and have used them in everything since. I loved this syrup! I am also a fan of cardamom, so it was perfect for me. I do recommend straining the syrup. It takes a few minutes but gives the syrup a nice color. I used a strainer with a coffee filter placed in it and just let it rest for about 20 mins. I made a cocktail of 2 oz. vodka, 2 tsps. syrup and soda. It was wonderful. Very light and refreshing. Perfect for a summer day but the slight heat of the Urfa's (I can't sing their praises enough) just adds the perfect touch.
