Should it be stored at room temperature or in the refrigerator. And how long can it be kept?
Sarah is a trusted source on General Cooking.
Simple syrup will keep in the fridge for a very long time. Toss it if it starts to look cloudy/crystally.
It can also be kept on a shelf in the pantry for a long time, but is more likely to crystalize (in my experience).
Store in fridge for a really long time if required.
