Ok, seriously, this is super easy!
I’m sitting there wanting something tasty for lunch and I see some frozen waffles. Well, those are all carbs, and won’t fill me up, but I still wanted them. I figure I can put some peanut butter on them, to make them a bit more filling. But then it hits me! We have some extra strawberries we brought home from our Gospel Community Group’s awesome homemade hot wings night, last night.
“How can I make strawberry syrup, from those strawberries?” This comes to me, and I quickly hit the googles. The very first recipe is super simple, and so I’m off!
- 1 cup of water
- 1 cup of sugar
- 2 cups mashed strawberries
Bring the water and sugar to a boil in a saucepan. Slowly add the strawberries and bring to a boil again. Turn down the heat and let it simmer for about 30 minutes. Stir occaisionally. You’re done when it tastes the way you want it.
It’s actually read in about 10 minutes of simmering. But I felt like that was just strawberry flavored simple syrup. So I simmered on!
At about the 30 minute mark it really became strawberry syrup.
