Strawberry Simple Syrup is really quick and easy to make, and super versatile as an ingredient. If you've ever made simple syrup, this is really similar with a sweet strawberry flavor. Perfect for making soda, on pancakes, or even in lemonade! And it's made from only fresh strawberries and sugar.
In a saucepan add water and strawberries. Bring to a boil then lower heat and simmer until strawberries soften and turn pale (about 7-10 minutes).
Into another saucepan, pour water through a strainer. Use the back of a spoon to strain strawberries a little bit, then discard berries.
Add sugar to water and whisk while bringing back up to a boil. Boil for 1-2 minutes, then reduce heat to a simmer. Continue to simmer for about 5 minutes, or until strawberry syrup is desired consistency.
