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.
