Homemade Strawberry Syrup Recipe

strawberry syrup recipeThis strawberry syrup recipe is SO yummy!!

I’ve recently decided that I will not be buying any more store bought maple syrup. Not only because of the expense, but also all of the preservatives and junk in them.

Jada has been such a good sport about eating plain pancakes. But as I was digging through my freezer yesterday, I found a pack of frozen strawberries. I decided to use them to make some syrup to surprise my little angel with. It came out so good, I wanted to share it with all of you! It goes particularly well with my favorite pancake recipe.

Homemade Strawberry Syrup Recipe

  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1 c. water
  • 1 1/2 c. unsweetened strawberries, mashed

In a med. saucepan bring water and sugar to a boil. Stir in mashed strawberries, and bring back to boil. Turn the heat to low, and simmer uncovered for about 10 min, stirring occasionally. Cool and put in a jar to refrigerate.

*If you want it a little thicker, add about 1 Tbsp. corn starch.

I filled an empty glass peanut butter jar full with this one batch. Makes about 18 oz.

Do you make your own pancake syrup? What’s your favorite recipe?

  1. Yep, I participate in making my own Maple Syrup. Well, I bring really old, strong Cheddar cheese, crackers, and beverages to the sugar house. Once the boil starts, you don’t leave. It takes 40 gallons of sap to create one gallon of syrup.
    The process has been modernized with reverse osmosis, but that rig runs about $37,000 on sale. It sucks out most of the water in the sap, so there is less that has to boil out. Then someone wires it in. Three-phase power. That R.O. rig is the size of a smart car – maybe a tad larger. The arch, or heating device can have a tiny 2 by 3 pan or pans up to 12 feet long by 4 feet wide. The steam trap on top, which warms the incoming sap, might be 8 to 9 feet tall. All gleaming, expensive, stainless steel. Did I mention the vacuum pumps that coax the sap out of the trees? Then there are the taps and thousands of feet of tubing to bring the sap down to the sugar house.
    No, Kendra, real Vermont maple syrup is a pretty good deal. There are no additives. The cost isn’t really that expensive, when you consider the investment involved.

  2. Hi Kendra,

    Just a thought, I was told by a CNC (Certified Nutrition Consultant) NOT to put potatoes in the fridge as it increases the starch content.
