1 handful conifer tips or needles, roughly copped
1 cup boiling water
1 cup granulate sugar
Tools: glass container, strainer

Place the conifer in a heat-proof ceramic or glass container. Pour boiling water over and cover. Let steep for at least 30 minutes and up to 24 hours. Strain through a fine-mesh strainer into a saucepan; discard the solids. Add the sugar. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Simmer for another minute. Remove from the heat and let cool. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
