Try a few tablespoons of this added to your next vinaigrette.
1 cup water
1 cup granulated sugar
3 3-inch peels of orange, lemon, and/or grapefruit

In a small saucepan, make your basic simple syrup recipe and add your peels and sage leaf while it’s still hot. Cover your pan and steep to desired strength. Strain out your peels and sage, and allow to cool. Bottle and refrigerate.
