This might seem a bit redundant, but I just recently discovered the use of Simple Syrup (and how to make it). Several of my favorite popsicle recipes and even my favorite cocktail — the Amaretto Sour, call for simple syrup, sooo I thought I would share how to make simple syrup.
Simple Syrup is an easy syrup that is merely sugar being dissolved in equal parts of water over heat. It’s a perfect addition to coffee and tea and , well, it’s great to have on hand for cocktails and other recipes!
Simple Syrup Recipe
- 2/3 cup organice cane sugar*
- 2/3 cup water
- Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, stirring until the mixture is transparent and the sugar is completely dissolved.
- Remove pan from burner and let cool.
- Store in sealed container in refrigerator for 4-6 weeks.
I’ve made a few batches of simple syrup now and store it in a mason jar. I enjoy the lower cost version of making it myself too. Enjoy!
p.s. Try your hand at this recipe using Simple Syrup.
Care to stay in the loop? I’d love to have you!
