How to Make Simple Syrup

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine the water and sugar in a medium saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil and let the sugar dissolve. You don't have to stir, but it will help the sugar dissolve faster.
  2. Remove the syrup from the heat and cool slightly.
  3. Depending upon what you're using it for, you can flavor the syrup:

    Stir in 1-2 teaspoons of vanilla extract for a basic vanilla syrup.
    Infuse with herbs or spices, if desired; mint and lemon are great for iced tea.
  4. Transfer the cooled syrup to a lidded container or jar that can be stored in the refrigerator. Simple syrup can be stored for up to one month.
