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.
