Strawberry Syrup Recipe // HonestlyYUM

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cups strawberries (halved)

Directions:

  • Combine the sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a simmer.
  • Once the syrup reaches a simmer remove from heat and let cool completely (approximately 30 minutes).
  • Add the strawberries. I like combining the strawberries once the syrup has cooled because you get a bright, fresh strawberry flavor, rather than a cooked, jammy strawberry flavor.
  • Use a potato masher to mash the strawberries to a pulp. If you don’t have a potato masher you can use the bottom of a glass.
  • Pour the mixture through a fine mesh strainer, removing the strawberry pulp. Store in the refrigerator.
