Sweet Lavender Gruel with Rye Berries

Lavender syrup:

1/4 cup water
1 TBSP Lavender
1-2 TBSP Palm Sugar

Gruel:

2-3 cups water
3/4 cup Rye Berries
1/4 cup almonds, chopped
6 blackberries
6 raspberries
1 TBSP sweet cream butter
Milk TT

Bring the water to a boil, add the rye berries and simmer for 30 minutes.

In the interim, prepare the syrup.  Bring the water to a boil, reduce to a low simmer and add lavender, steep for 20 minutes add the sugar and continue to simmer.  (Make extra and use it in yogurt for a nice treat!)

Add the nuts to the rye berries and continue to simmer for 10 minutes.  Toss in the berries and give them a good swirl, finish with butter, lavender syrup and milk.
