Simple Syrup
Serves: 2 cups
  • Granulated Sugar 1 cup (200g)
  • Water 1 cup (237ml)
  1. In a heavy bottom saucepan combine the granulated sugar and water.
  2. Bring to a boil and allow to boil continuously for about 3-5 minutes until it reaches the thread stage.
  3. Cool completely then store in an airtight clean container.
Store syrup in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.

Be sure to use a very clean pastry brush each time you dip in, so you do not leave any unwanted bacteria in the leftover syrup for longer shelf life.
