Strawberry Syrup

I had a request for strawberry syrup,
so I went to my friend Jay at Willard Farms

They smelled delicious, and the hubby could not resist eating a few off the top on the ride back home. Once home, the prepping begins. It takes quite a while to clean and chop two gallons of strawberries!

The syrup recipe is a simple one and can be used to make any flavor syrup you would like to try. I've made Blueberry and Blackberry already. Now strawberry, and I think I'll make cherry next. They are great to have on hand for pancakes, crepes, ice cream, yogurt and much more!

Basic Syrup

1 cup fruit
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup water

Clean and chop fruit. Combine fruit water and sugar. Bring to a boil, then simmer until thickened.* (about 20-30 minutes) Cool and pour in jars. Store in the refrigerator or process in a water-bath for 10 minutes for pints and 15 minutes for quarts.
*The request I had for syrup was to leave the fruit in the syrup, but you can strain it out if you like.

I also made some strawberry ice cream using
