Super Simple Strawberry Syrup

Last Thursday I took O and E for a little trip to the Fullerton Farmers Market with one of my best friends and her kiddos. Among an assortment of produce we got a flat of delicious ripe strawberries and I figured this is a perfect opportunity to learn a new recipe so I decided to try my hand at strawberry syrup. It’s so simple and so good!
Here is the recipe.

Simple Sweet Strawberry Syrup

Ingredients:
– 1cup of water
– 1cup of granulated sugar
– 2-3 cups of strawberries

Directions:

  1. Combine sugar and water in a sauce pan and heat u ntill sugar is diluted (med high heat for around 5 minutes).
  2. Prep strawberries by cutting of tops and dicing them up (I used my favorite hand powered Tupperware chopper Tupperware Chop ‘N Prep Chef).
  3. Add strawberries to the sugar water and bring to a boil for about 10 minutes. Dont forget to stir it; mine boiled over a little bit.
  4. Next you can strain out the strawberries if you want, but I left them in and it tasted great!
  5. Use the syrup right away or put it into a sealed container and store it in your refrigerator.

Bonus: This slightly watery syrup moistened up my less than perfect pancakes.

Just for fun here is a photo of O and my best friends daughter at the farmer’s market.
