Homemade Strawberry Syrup is super easy to make with only two ingredients.
Servings 4 servings
- 2 cups strawberries
- 1 cup sugar
Crush the berries well and mix with the sugar. In a heavy bottom pot, heat over the stove on medium-high heat, stirring often.
Whatever you do...don't allow it to boil or you'll have strawberry jam and though good...that's not what we're looking for today! Stir the berries frequently and occasionally crush them to really combine the sugar and strawberries.
Just before it comes to a boil, remove it from the heat.
Place a sieve over a large bowl. Pour the strawberry mixture into the sieve and allow it to drain thru - about 10 minutes. Just walk away and leave it alone! (In other words, don't try and force the liquid out of the berries.
Drain for about 10 minutes - when the dripping stops, remove the sieve and discard the berries.
This will make about 2 ½-3 cups of delicious homemade strawberry syrup and keeps in the refrigerator for about a week.
