Ingredients

2 cups sugar
2 cups water


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


2 cups sugar


2 cups water


Place together in a saucepan and bring to a boil on medium heat.


Reduce from boil to medium heat and simmer gently for about five minutes - until the sugar dissolves completely.


Cool to room temperature and store.


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
