How to Make Simple Syrup
- 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.
- Remove the syrup from the heat and cool slightly.
- 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.
- 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.
