I didn't quite follow the recipe to the T... I blended the strawberries in the blender poured all ingredients into a pot simmered about 20 to 30 minutes. I didn't strain. Skimmed foam and put into bottles. One for fridge rest for freezer. Eating it right now on strawberry cheesecake ice cream. Very pretty and very yummy. My 6yr old says, "thank you." He requested that I make strawberry syrup for pancakes.

I used 4 cups of crushed strawberries and this recipe made 6 half pints for me. I canned all but 2 of the half pints. The syrup is yummy! Glad I made this and would definitely make it again. Thanks for posting.
