Author Notes: Use this syrup to make milkshakes, pour it over waffles or pancakes, or add it to soda water to make a sparkling strawberry spritzer.
Makes: aproximately 2 cups or 500 milliliters
4 to 5
cups hulled strawberries, cut in half
teaspoon lemon juice (optional)
- Put all the ingredients into a medium pot with a lid and bring the mixture to the boil. Once boiling, continue to let it bubble with the lid on for 10 minutes.
- Strain the strawberries using a fine mesh sieve and press to release all of the liquid.
- Put this liquid back into the pot and bring it back to the boil, this time with the lid off. Allow it to cook for 5 to 10 more minutes, until it starts forming a syrupy consistency.
- Allow it to cool completely -- it will thicken even further -- and then pour it into sterilized bottles or jars. Keep it for up to 1 week in the refrigerator.
