Simple Syrup

You can find many simple syrup recipes on the web. Check them out! Since we use a lot of simple syrup in our kitchen, I like to avoid using the white processed sugar and instead buy a bag of this stuff. Any brand that is an evaporated cane juice works great. I think simple syrup made from this tastes better. I use this in my Duet Mint Mojito recipe and in the homemade lemonade that I make. I also make a batch, adding vanilla for our lattes or cold brew coffee.

All you have to do is put a 1:1 ratio together. Heat it in the microwave or on the stove until the sugar melts. Stir often. Let cool and keep in your favorite container in the fridge. The ratio I make is 1 cup water and 1 cup of the sugar.

And, did you know that you can make your own hummingbird recipe in a similar fashion? Don’t buy that red stuff in the store. Just add a cup of water to a 1/4 cup of sugar. Heat it up. Cool it down. Add it to your feeder.
