strawberry syrup

We grow our own strawberries and are always looking for different ways to use them.  My husband has been eating an apple type syrup when he goes out for pancakes. My son likes blueberry syrup, so I was somehow led to to make  strawberry syrup from all that.  We had fresh strawberries I needed to do something with and I didn’t want to turn on the oven.

I used a blender as I wanted to use a lot of dishes either.

You can use a mesh strainer and strain out the seeds.  I don’t have one.  I can tell you, the strawberry syrup still tastes great.

Some other things you can do with this, is make strawberry lemonade.  You can pour this on your ice cream or spread on your toast.

Ingredients:

1 pint strawberries with stems removed
lemon juice from 1/2 small lemon
3/4 cup sugar
canning funnel (to get the syrup into the jar)
Jars with lids to pour syrup into

Instructions:

In your blender, add the strawberries, lemon juice and sugar.
Blend until it looks like a smoothie.
Pour into a pan and heat until the sugar is melted.
You will need to watch and stir so it does not burn.
Once it is ready, skim off any bubbly scum, or leave it your choice.
Put the funnel onto the jar and fill, leaving 1/2″ head space.
Add the lids and seal.
Allow to cool and store in the refrigerator
Note: I use canning jars and seals and rings. I turn mine upside down after sealing and after an hour, flip up right so they seal.
