Happy Happy Tuesday everybody!!! Oh snap, is it really the second How to Series post for the second week in row? Why yes it is y’all, and honestly I just couldn’t help myself. I’ve been perusing through my mom’s 4 billion cookbooks and recipe card catalogs and I just keep finding these totally easy but insanely delicious recipes and I just had to share another one this week.
I think this is another recipe that might get passed over because (and trust me I’ve felt the same way) most people would just go buy an already made strawberry syrup. Well, let me tell you, that would be a mistake, because this incredible strawberry syrup totally raised the bar on everything it was put on.
On my last cheat day, I whipped this stuff up, and thought I might throw some on some ice cream and OMG y’all, it is freaking incredible on ice cream. That combo was so good I figured it would be equally as good on some Belgian waffles and holy freaking moly, I honestly didn’t think it was possible to love waffles anymore and this syrup totally did that.
For a recipe that is this super quick and easy to make, it totally tastes unbelievably decadent and mouth watering. Just go ahead and raise your brunch bar y’all with this insanely delicious strawberry syrup I promise you will be happy you did. I hope you’re having an incredible week so far and thank you so much for stopping by my little neck of the woods.
all blended up…
sugar, lemon juice and strawberry syrup into your saucepan…
get it boiling…
all done and ready to cool…
- 2 Cups of Fresh Strawberries or 2 Cups Frozen, Thawed.
- 2 Cups of Granulated Sugar.
- 1/4 Teaspoon of Lemon Juice.
- Wash, remove stems and slice your strawberries.
- Either using a blender or hand blender, process your strawberries until liquid.
- In a medium/large sauce pan, place your sugar, lemon juice and strawberry liquid.
- On low heat, and while stirring, heat the sugar/lemon juice/strawberry liquid until the sugar dissolves.
- Then raise the heat to medium high and bring to a boil, reduce the heat then let it simmer for 5 minutes.
- Remove from the heat, let cool, then pour it on everything remotely edible and enjoy!!!
- The original recipe said to run the processed strawberries through a mesh strainer into your saucepan before cooking, you're totally welcome to, but the syrup turned out perfect without doing so.
