"This is a delicious and easy to make syrup. I use this to pour over pancakes and Belgian waffles, over ice cream or pound cake, angel food cake or cheesecake! Your imagination is your only limitation! Please remember to skim the froth off the syrup while it is simmering for your best flavor. I first discovered this recipe in Southern Living."
Serving Size: 1 (758 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 1
"So simple--and yummy! A hint regarding the foam: drop a tsp or so of butter in the syrup while it's cooking--this will cut way down on the foam."
"loved it! i followed review suggestions by adding half the sugar and a little dab of butter. i did strain mine.
wow. this syrup is amazing!"
"I doubled the Strawberries and only added 1 1/2 cups Sugar and it turned out plenty sweet. Like some of the other reviewers I also didn't strain the berries because we don't mind the seeds and little chunky texture. This is absolutely wonderful over Ice cream, French toast and Pancakes. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe."
"This recipe worked very well for me and tastes good, too! However, just a hint: remember to skim off the "foam" that boils up once you take it off the heat; it will ruin your syrup! Luckily I was able to get most of it out afterwards. :P "
"This was super good and it didn't last in our home long at all. Thanks."
"This was absolutely fantasic syrup. Just the smell in the kitchen when I was cooking it was to die for. I made one small sub to the recipe since I was low on regular sugar. I had about 1 1/3 c. sugar and then 2/3 c. turbinado. Definitely Yummy!!"
"I made this sauce last night to serve over vanilla ice cream. I followed recipe as stated..We really enjoyed this. I cant wait to serve over pancakes or chocolate fudge cake. YUMMMMM...I will use this recipe for raspberry sauce and black berry....Thank U for this recipe...."
"Thanks for the recipe. I actually used agave syrup in place of the sugar, and added a hint of molasses. It is totally delicious."
"Oh my gosh...this is so good!!! I had strawberries in the freezer that I needed to find a use for, and this was the ticket!! Simple to make, and delicious!!! We had it over ice cream, and it is to die for!!! DH enjoyed it very much also. Next, I'll try it on pancakes... Thank you, Bev!!!"
"Wow! My daughter was making strawberry pancakes, and we needed strawberry syrup to go with it. This one was GREAT! Very easy to make and it has a great taste, Thanks!"
"This is really good. I get strawberries very, very cheap at this time of year (something like 4 lbs for a dollar) and I'm always looking for more ways to use them. This is a great one! Thank you for posting!!"
"Have been making this for a while and just realized I hadn't rated it yet! :-P Love this syrup. We use it on almost anything that it can be poured on! LOL!"
"Very easy and pretty! I did add one large tablespoon or so of an orange liquor as it was boiling......the color was awsome as well as the flavor. I made it to go with blueberry pancakes for a red,white & blue brunch this past 4th of July."
"Simply delicious! I didn't bother to strain it and it was still yummy. Left it a little chunky for some strawberry bits on our waffles. Leftovers will be yummy on ice cream later!"
"Love this stuff on buttermilk pancakes with whipped cream. Just wonderful! It also lasts a long time in the freezer."
"Easy and delicous, this syrup's sweetness is just right. Thank you!"
"This was my first syrup ever, and it was great! I did leave the seeds in though, because I like the texture. I'm sure I'll be making this many more times. Thanks Bev."
"Perfectly delicious! I used fresh strawberries and followed the directions exactly. The results are divine. I have had it on pastries, banana muffins and plan to make Recipe #170229. This makes your whole house smell wonderful as it cooks. My first bite brought me back to my childhood when I made strawberry jam. Thank you BEV!"
"I didnt bother straining either. It was so GOOD!! My daughters LOVED it!! I used a bag of frozen strawberries and 1/2tsp of lemon juice. They were so excited to eat homemade syrup with their pancakes. It was so easy to make too!! This is definitely a keeper."
"This was SO good! I mixed raspberries and strawberries and didn't strain the seeds. We poured it over waffles (#31750) and served it with bacon and whipped cream. YUM!"
