As The Girl and I were sorting free strawberries the other day, we were trying to come up with something to do with the strawberries other than freeze them. So we decided to make a large batch of strawberry syrup. Followed by a platter of pancakes. And then we proceeded to sit on the back porch and stuff our faces. It was awesome.
Here is the recipe:
3 cups strawberries, chopped
2 cups water
1/2 cup sugar
Bring sugar and water to a boil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add strawberries and return to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool syrup. Serve over pancakes, ice cream or bottle it up and enjoy it later in lemonade.
Have you ever made syrup before? Do you have a favorite blend?
