How To Make Simple Strawberry Syrup

If you’ve never had home made strawberry syrup, you should definitely give it a try.  Making syrup from scratch is very simple and easy to do.  All you need is:

  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1/4 cup of honey (optional)
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 lb of fresh strawberries

Cooking instructions:

  • Pour the water, sugar, and sliced strawberries into a pot and bring to a low boil.  To prevent the syrup from foaming up too fast, stir often and make sure it doesnt boil too hot.
  • When the strawberries begin to fade in color, dip them out and strain any excess syrup back into pot.
  • While continuing to boil the syrup, skim off any excess foam.  Pour in 1/4 cup of honey and continue boiling until the mixture has been reduced to a little less than half of its original volume.
  • Once the syrup has been reduced, pour into a mason jar, cover, and refrigerate for 4 – 6 hours.

That’s it! Enjoy
