Simple syrups are great for many things like cocktails, coffees, and even some baking recipes.
I really want to start “homesteading” more… Well, as much as one can living in a metropolis and in an apartment. But I really love the idea of doing more homemade things and using more sustainable food sources.
These homemade simple syrups are perfect for your summer entertaining. With peach, strawberry, and vanilla, the possibilities are many.

- 1C water
- 1C granulated sugar
- 1 1/2C strawberries, hulled and sliced
- 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.
