Here are some of my favorite syrups and fruit combinations ideas:
- Cherry Lime (do the cherries as the recipe calls for and add 1 T of fresh lime juice after you strain the fruit.
- Herbs! Use 10 leaves instead of 1 c of fruit. Basil, Chamomile and Mint make great syrups
- Strawberry Rhubarb
- Raspberry Blueberry
- Vanilla: Use 1 vanilla bean instead of the fruit.
Makes 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 cups depending on the fruit
Garden Fresh Simple Syrups
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1 cup chopped fruit
Bring water and sugar to boil so that sugar dissolves completely. Add in your chopped fruit and lower heat to medium heat and simmer for an additional 10 minutes. Strain fruit out and chill. Cover and keep refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
