Strawberry Syrup

Strawberry Syrup
Since The Man is, almost always, talked into making waffles on Sunday I learned, long ago, how to make homemade syrups.  Strawberry, blueberry & maple; it's like IHOP except without the gum-chomping waitress!

This last summer our obsession with strawberries grew to a new level as I was buying two containers a week to supplement our habit.  I worried that with winter just around the corner we'd have to go months without the sweet red fruit.  So, instead of just two, I bought an extra container every week, bagged, dated and froze them until I thought we had enough to get us through till this spring.

Ingredients
  • 10 oz. frozen sliced strawberries in juice, thawed
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
Directions
  1. Blend berries with mixer until smooth.  
  2. Stir in syrup & salt.  
  3. Transfer to pan.  Bring to boil over medium heat.  Reduce heat to medium-low.
  4. Boil, stirring constantly for 5 minutes.
