Tasty Tuesday - Strawberry Syurp


Strawberry Syrup Recipe

2 1/2 Quarts Strawberries
3 Cups Water, Divided
2 pieces of lemon peel (1 inch strips)
2 1/2 cups Sugar
3 1/2 cups corn syrup
2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice

After washing and drying the strawberries cut up and crush them with a potato mashers.  Combine them in a pot with 1 1/2 cups of water and lemon peel.  Simmer 10 minutes.  Strain and remove lemon peel. Combine sugar and 1 1/2 cups water in your pot stir until sugar is melting and is almost boiling, turn down stove to simmer for 10 minutes.  Add strawberries and corn syrup.  Boil 5 minutes remove from heat and stir in lemon juice.  Ladle hot syrup into hot jars, leaving 1/4 inch head space.  Process 10 minutes in a boiling water bath.  This made 2/12 quarts.

Note: I replaced the Corn syrup with agave nectar and it worked out very well.  I used 3 cups of agave. 

This syrup is great over pancakes especially with fresh strawberries and makes a tasty strawberry lemonade.  I also put it in our ice tea to sweeten it.

Might be good straight from the pot, too! LOL!
I'm missing strawberry season at home-I'm devastated. Last year I got 75 quarts. I used the last out of the freezer right before our trip. It's going to be a LONG year without. Sigh.

OH yes it was good straight from the pot...over ice cream...in yogurt. Just too many ways to eat it.
