HOMEMADE SYRUP RECIPES
First, before you print these homemade syrup recipes, you must make my homemade pancakes. They are light and fluffy - way better than that boxed pancake mix. Now on to the stars of the page; my flavored syrups.
Out of strawberry syrup? You can have this made in a few minutes.RECIPE FOR STRAWBERRY SYRUP
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup water
1-1/2 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
In a saucepan, bring sugar and water to a boil. Gradually add strawberries; return to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve over pancakes, waffles or ice cream.
Blackberry syrup makes good pancakes; superb. But that's not all. Splash some in your iced tea or lemonade, or mix with sparkling water, vodka (or gin) (and seltzer) for a grown-up soda pop. Use this method to make raspberry, cherry, or any other berry syrup.
1-1/2 cups white sugar
1 cups water
2 cups fresh (or frozen) blackberries
Mix the ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a full boil; stirring constantly. When it boils, reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes until sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from heat and let sit for 15 minutes for flavor to meld. Strain through a fine mesh sieve into a clean container. Refrigerate for up to 7 days (but it won't last that long).
This homemade syrup recipe produces a creamy syrup that is scrumptious on waffles, oatmeal and griddle cakes. Have the kids dip apples in it.
