Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • You will want to ensure that you remove all the stems from your strawberries. If you do not remove them, you may find that your strawberry simple syrup is bitter. 
  • Fresh strawberries are best to use, but if you can’t find any in season or they are too expensive you can use frozen strawberries. They might not have as much flavor, but you will still be able to make a delicious simple syrup. 
  • Keep an eye on your simple syrup as it cooks. All stoves cook at different temperatures, so alter the time as needed. 
  • Be sure to not press too hard when straining your strawberry syrup. If you push too hard you will find that you get pieces of the strawberry in your syrup. 
  • Your strawberry syrup should not be thick like pancake syrup. It is a thin syrup. 
  • Swap out the strawberries and make other simple syrups. Try using raspberries, blackberries or even peaches.
