Active time: 20 minutes

Strawberry simple syrup

  • 2 ½ c (400g) whole strawberries
  • 2 c (470g) water
  • 1 c (200g) cane sugar

  1. Wash the strawberries and cut off their leaves.
  2. Blend the strawberries and water. 
  3. Strain the solids.
  4. Combine the strained strawberry juice and sugar in a small saucepan. Heat it on low for about five minutes, until the sugar is dissolved.


  • To strain the juice, use a fine mesh strainer and use a spatula to squeeze out as much juice as possible. You can also use a nut milk back and squeeze out the excess juice.
  • Don’t allow the strawberry and sugar mixture to get too hot, as it could activate pectins and turn the mixture into jam.
