I just can't stop!
Now I've gone and made strawberry syrup!
(I know! When will the madness end?)
Just like the boysenberry syrup, I took
2 cups of water,
2 cups of sugar
(Oh! Rats! I should have used my turbinado sugar! I didn't think! That probably would have been even BETTER!)
a pint of stemmed and washed strawberries......
Just bring to a boil, reduce the heat and let simmer until slightly thickened.
Then strain and cool.
Put in a pretty jar - especially one with a red lid - continue to let cool and then refrigerate for up to 30 days.
(Okay, you've caught me - it doesn't HAVE to go in a pretty jar, but doesn't that make it more fun?)
What am I going to do with all my berry syrups?
Well, I could.....
1. Pour it over ice cream.
2. Add it to lemonade.
3. Make Italian sodas with sparkling water or club soda.
4. Make Italian cream sodas (add half and half to the above "recipe").
5. Make strawberry margaritas or....maybe.....martinis.
6. Pour over pancakes or French toast or waffles.
Do you have any ideas?
I'll make you a batch!
Oh my! I also noticed I'm very close to 500 followers, so a giveaway must not be far behind! Come back for details once that follower odometer rolls over to 500!
