Resist the urge to press down on the strawberries to release more liquid, doing so will make your strawberry syrup cloudy.

Pour into a glass container, seal, and refrigerate. The syrup should last for several weeks in the refrigerator or you can freeze in a freezer-safe container for two months.

Recipe Notes & Tips

  • I did not remove the foam that was floating on top, it disappeared by itself in the refrigerator.
  • For a thicker syrup to use for pancakes, simmer for an additional 10 minutes to thicken the syrup.
