Strawberry Syrup RECIPE VIDEO

‘Tis the season of strawberries! Strawberry season always makes me so excited because it means summer is just around the corner! Which means, warm beach days, warmish beach water (at least warm enough for a spring suit, I’m a wimp), and for Carlsbad locals and Legoland tourist, it means fresh strawberry picking in the strawberry fields!

Rows and rows of fresh, plump, sweet strawberries, just begging to be plucked and appreciated…

I think I can do that.

So what do you do with all those hand-picked fresh strawberries you might ask? (or store bought fresh strawberries that were picked for you? 🙂 )…

Make Fresh Strawberry Syrup!

Ingredients for Strawberry Syrup

You only need 4 basic ingredients for this recipe!

  • strawberries: the riper, the sweeter! Remove the stems and chop them; chop larger for chunkier syrup, smaller for smoother syrup.
  • lemon juice: fresh is best! Lemon juice enhances the fresh berry flavor and balances the sugar.
  • sugar: granulated sugar please to sweeten the strawberries into syrup! You may need more or less depending on your personal preference and how sweet your strawberries are.
  • vanilla extract: just a dash adds a depth of flavor.

Can I use frozen strawberries?

Yes! When fresh strawberries aren’t in season, frozen strawberries are a great alternative. Thaw the strawberries, remove excess water and proceed with the recipe as written. You will need to simmer the syrup longer to chicken because the frozen strawberries will release more water. If the syrup doesn’t thicken to your liking, mix 2 teaspoons of cornstarch with ¼ cup water and stir it into the syrup and simmer another 5 minutes or so until thickened.

how to make strawberry syrup

This strawberry syrup can be ready in just 20 minutes! 5 minutes for chopping strawberries and 15 minutes to simmer. Here’s how:

  • Combine strawberries, sugar, lemon juice and vanilla in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil.
  • Lower heat to a gentle simmer until the strawberries are soft and the syrup is thickened and reduced by ⅓ to ½ in volume, approximately 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Syrup will thicken upon standing so simply whisk in more water to reached desired consistency if needed.
  • Serve over anything and everything!

what to serve strawberry syrup with

Strawberry Syrup pairs perfectly with ice cream or even better – an ice cream brownie sundae (insane!), on top of cheesecake, in slushies as well as instantly elevates any pancake, waffle, crepe or French toast into something you would pay an arm and a leg for at an overpriced French cafe, which you gladly do because every bite of sweet syrupy goodness is practically priceless.

Priceless I tell you.

But wait! You can indulge your entire family or brunch guests to gourmet dining by making this Fresh Strawberry Syrup in your own home, simply by simmering 4 ingredients in one pot – doesn’t get any easier than this!

And in 15 short minutes, you have this…

Which then can drown this Angel Food Cake and Cream Cheese French Toast – my personal favorite way to eat this mouthwatering Fresh Strawberry Syrup – you don’t want to miss it!

How to customize Strawberry syrup consistency

Just one quick note – this Strawberry syrup is completely customizable as far as thickness and strawberry chunkiness go.

  • If you like syrup with slightly more defined strawberries, (as in pictures), dice your strawberries larger.
  • If you like your strawberries almost unrecognizable (as in the Video), dice strawberries smaller. Both are completely delicious, one is just a little chunkier and the other smoother.
  • You can also go with larger strawberries and mash them up a little more as the sauce cooks.
  • You can also add your syrup to a blender and puree until smooth for extra smooth Strawberry Syrup – just be sure you let the steam escape from a corer of your blender cover or it will explode AKA the only time you will not like Strawberry Syrup.
  • You can also customize the thickness/consistency of your Strawberry Syrup by simmering longer for thicker Syrup/Sauce or for thinner Syrup, simmer less time or stir in water at the end of thickening just until its your perfection.

Cook’s Note – Strawberry Syrup Recipe

  • This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled – just use a larger pot and simmer the sauce for longer.
  • You can serve this syrup cold OR hot! Warm it up slightly for a warm strawberry sauce!
  • You can substitute the strawberries for other berries such as blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries or use a combination of berries. You can even used pitted cherries. I’ve used raspberries and strawberries before and it was fantastic!
  • If the strawberries are berries are extra sweet, reduce the sugar to ¾ cup and add more to taste.
  • The vanilla extract is optional, don’t have it, no problem!
