How to Make
What do you think?
Combine the water and the sugar in a small sauce pan, at medium heat. Bring to a simmer, until the sugar has completely dissolved. Next add the dehydrated limes and peppercorns, and lower the heat. Simmer for at least 15 minutes, or until desired intensity. The longer you let your ingredients simmer, the more intense the flavour.
If you want to up the spicy factor, try muddling the peppercorns first, and than straining through a cheesecloth at the end.
This syrup will keep up for at least two 2 weeks, stored in a sealed jar.
