Thanks for the basic recipe. It is one of those things that if you only make it rarely that you forget the proportions!
I have discovered that if you boil the water in a kettle first, then mix the water and sugar, you don't need to cook it for 7 mins (too hot to have the stove on!) Works great.
Perfect. I used it in Banana Ice Cream.
I vote this the easiest recipe on Zaar! I use this simple syrup for the perfect summertime Mojito (along with fresh mint from my garden). Cheers! Thanks for posting.
This is very good. I even used a sugar substitute (Xylosweet or something like that) and it worked great for another recipe for Whiskey Sours. Thanks for posting!
Went to make a lemon drop martinin and it called for simple syrup. Had no idea what it was then found this recipe. Worked like a charm and soooo easy to make. Now I've a small container sitting in the fridge so I can have a repeat performance - YUM!
I use simple syrup mainly to sweeten iced tea, and brush on loaves after baking. I've seen "gourmet" shops selling simple syrup for $5 a bottle...lol.
The name says it all--simple. I made this to use with Banana Ice Cream. The directions were perfect. Thanks for taking the time to post this recipe.
turned out wonderfully and works great for alcoholic drinks and mojitos!! or add to tea if you dont' like the settling sugar granules!!
I used this recipe to make some caramel popcorn when I did not have the corn syrup I needed. It turned out great and I don't think I need to buy corn syrup anymore.
