3 Ingredients Syrup! DIY Fresh Raspberry Syrup

Fruit syrup is one of the most common ingredients for cocktails and beverages.

Usually the store bought type are full of high fructose corn syrup that may not be good for your health.

And sometimes, in our case, our grocery store does not sell them at all. So in order to make the beverage we want, we do it all from scratch :)

Fresh Fruits + water + sugar of your preference (you can use organic raw sugar, it really doesn't matter)

Easy 3 ingredient recipe that is good from drinks and cocktails and if you reduced the raspberry liquids about 1/3 before adding the sugar, the consistency will be more of a pourable pancake dressing.

Most fruits can use this method to obtain a syrup so experiment away~

Homemade Raspberry Syrup
Yields 300ml (1 ¼ cups)

370g (13oz.) Fresh Raspberries
360ml (1 ½ cups) Water
100g (½ cup) Granulated Sugar

1. Put water and raspberries on high heat in a sauce pot
2. When it starts boiling, turn down the heat to a simmer
3. Skim off any foam and let it simmer for 20 minutes
4. After 20 minutes, turn off the heat and strain it through a fine mesh strainer
5. Reheat the juices to a simmer and add in the sugar
6. Stir occasionally until all the sugar has dissolved, around 5 minutes
7. Let syrup cool to room temperature and bottle it
8. Store in the refrigerator, it can be kept in there for 6-8 weeks

I. When straining the juice, do not push the pulp for more juice, this will cause the syrup to turn cloudy
II. Although the cooked raspberries may not have a lot of flavor left, you can mix it with a smoothie if you don’t want to discard the pulp
III. This raspberry syrup’s consistency is for common beverage recipes, if you wish to use it for pancakes or waffle, cook the syrup longer at step 6 to a thicker stage

Hope you guys enjoy this weeks [How To's]

See  you next week :)
