1 ¼ cup Kosher Salt

2 cups sugar

2 cups honey

1 big bunch of parsley

6 or more sprigs each of thyme, tarragon, sage (if you don’t have fresh, I just use up my old dried herbs).

3 lemons halved

1 can concentrated apple juice

1 gallon (16 cups) boiling water

1 gallon cold water

You can also throw in an orange of whatever else that is hanging around and seems good.

3-4 packets of the fresh peeled garlic

1 onion

3-4 stalks of celery

2 carrots (too many carrots can make it too sweet).

Big bunch of parsley

4 big Tbsps. of flour
