"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."
"OMG, this is a wonderful recipe!! So good!!! Definately a keeper!! I did add a little butter to the mix to keep down the foam (similar to jelly/jam making). Thanks for a wonderful recipe!!!"
"Strawberries were on sale so I picked some up and made this syrup to have on hand for drinks for the week. We loved it!"
"This is very good syrup. I didn't have cheesecloth, so I put it into the blender. I didn't add as much sugar, and it still came out real sweet. Will make this again."
"Very yummy and easy to make."
"My syrup was not that thin. More like a good maple syrup. Very sweet too. And the most amazing thing is that my dh who hates fruit syrups from the store loved this!!"
"The hardest thing about this recipe is cleaning the strawberries.I get mine from a farm and to say they were dirty is a understatement!.The syrup is very thin--is it suppose to be? I am wondering if a bit of pectin might thicken it up some. If you use this syrup for, say strawberry shortcake--DON"T sweeten your berries.I guess I should have known better.I really had fun making this syrup,and I fixed two batches.The recipe didn't say,but after canning,I put in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes. Out of the two batches I made 12-4 oz jars, and 2- 8 oz jars. Thanks for sharing the recipe PG.:0) "
