How to: Make your Own Fresh Strawberry Syrup

This is an absolutely divine Strawberry Syrup that takes less than 30 minutes and makes a pint of sumptuous syrup!   We truly enjoy this syrup.  Who needs to buy syrup from the store when you can make this at home?

Strawberry Syrup makes about 1 pint syrup
1/2 pound rip strawberries, washed and hulled
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon orange juice

In a medium saucepan combine ingredients.  Smash strawberries and turn heat to medium.  Bring to a boil, reduce to simmer for 10 minutes without a cover.

Remove from heat.  Enjoy warm on pancakes.  Allow to cool to room temperature before using for ice cream and cocktails.  If you prefer seedless syrup, strain with a fine mesh sieve.
