Why I Love This Recipe

Makes 2 1/2 cups of delicious, sweet and versatile dessert starting - Simple Sugar Syrup!

This is a great base for desserts and candies...

If you want to infuse your syrup with more flavor, add in your favorite herbs or other flavorings -before the boil. Just remember that when you add ingredients, you will need to "clean out" your syrup by pouring it through several layers of cheesecloth to remove the herbs and other agents and leave only the flavors! Clean your syrup after the sugar has melted but before the syrup has cooled to room temp!

Some ideas:

lavender simple syrup

basil simple syrup

mint simple syrup

lime simple syrup
