Strawberry Simple Syrup

Strawberry Simple Syrup

I love strawberries too! I can imagine this lovely simple syrup making a lot of appearances during cocktail hour AND breakfast!

Strawberry syrup is the best. I haven’t used it on pancakes, but that’s a brilliant idea. :D

This looks like it’d make the best syrup for snow cones and strawberry drinks, like margs or lemonade. Love it!

Ohmygoodness. If I made this, Trevor would drink it!

Haha! Maybe that means you should make it ;)

I love these photos! And I can’t wait to try this recipe…if I can ever pry some strawberries out of my kids’ hands lol they gobble them up as soon as buy them!

Ohhh this would be perfect in a summer sangria or some cocktail!!

This is gorgeous! Such a versitile recipe!!!

I want to pour this into my glass of lemonade I am having right now! Wow its beautiful, your photos are great too!

Do you keep it in Weck jars in the refrig or do you process the jars in a waterbath and keep in the pantry?

I have so far only stored in the fridge.

An easy homemade recipe for strawberry simple syrup. A great addition to pancakes, French toast and your favorite drink mixes!

This past Friday was the Father/Daughter dance at school. The girls were of course super excited about it, from the dresses to the shoes and definitely the hair. What I wasn’t prepared for was for them to become obsessed with having curly hair. Three days in a row they requested it. And this was all after a major curling iron fail.

Sometime since last year’s dance, the kids broke my old curling iron and I knew at least one of them would want curly hair so, Target to the rescue. I picked up a new curling iron the morning of the dance, just in case. It proved to be the worst purchase ever.

My biggest complaint is that it didn’t heat well at all. It actually stopped heating halfway through. So much so that I could hold the barrel in my hand… and it was definitely still on and plugged in. Curling iron fail.

I’ve since swapped it out with a curling wand. I’ll admit, I’m a bit obsessed with it too but I’ve only used it on my own hair once. It heats so much better and allows you to style quicker too. I was happily surprised by that! The old curling iron took for-eeeever to style their hair.

If you’re curious, this is the one I bought. It comes with a handy glove to prevent burns while holding the hair. My only complaint is that the buttons are easy to press while holding the wand, so you can very easily change the temp accidentally. But, I do love the larger digital display!

My love for strawberries is getting me in trouble. Not literally of course, but strawberry season doesn’t really hit us in New England until at least June. The problem lies in the fact that once Spring hits, I’m craving strawberries in a serious way. I can’t get enough and finding good quality strawberries is proving harder than it should.

Don’t be surprised if you see many more strawberry recipes in the coming weeks. I’m obsessed.

This is the perfect item to have on-hand, basically all of the time. Easy homemade strawberry simple syrup. It’s perfect for all of your breakfast needs… pancakes, French toast, whatever your heart desires. And of course, your favorite drink mixes! Whip it up and keep it chilled until the mood strikes. It’s an absolute must make and a definite pantry… or rather, fridge staple!

An easy homemade recipe for strawberry simple syrup. A great addition to pancakes, French toast and your favorite drink mixes!



In a medium saucepan, combine water, sugar and sliced strawberries. Gently stir to dissolve sugar and bring to a boil. Skim off foam and discard. Reduce to a low simmer for 5-10 minutes.

Skim off remaining foam and pour contents into a mesh strainer, set over a medium bowl. Allow the liquid to drain. Do not press extra liquid from the strawberries, this will create a foggy liquid. Discard solids. Cool to room temperature, then transfer liquid to desired storage container and chill until ready to use.
