Strawberry Syrup

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 5 minutes
Cuisine: Continental
Serves: 1 cup

Strawberries- 15 nos (1 packet) 1 cup puree approx.
Sugar- 1 cup
Water- 1/2 cup
Lemon Juice- a squeeze (optional)

  • Remove the stem and leaves of the strawberries and wash them. Pat dry the strawberries using a kitchen towel and roughly chop them in to pieces.
  • In a blender jar add the strawberry pieces and blend them as a fine paste.
  • Strain the puree to remove the seeds from the puree by moving a spoon inside the strainer.( You could strain after making syrup too) 
  • Add the clear juice on a flat pan.
  • On the strainer some of the strawberry pulp and some seeds settles.
  • With this add 1/2 cup more water and blitz again twice or thrice in a blender jar.
  • Strain this again to remove seeds and add with the juice collected earlier inside the pan.
  • Add the sugar with the strawberry puree and boil in low flame and reduce to form a syrup.
  • Initially when the syrup starts to boil it starts to become frothy and pale red to orange colour.
  • Once it starts to thicken the frothiness disappear and the bright red colour appears by constant stirring.
  • Check the consistency by touching the warm syrup in between fingers which starts to form thread.(Just before one thread consistency-pisukku padam (sticky stage))
  • Because the syrup further thickens while cooling. If you over cook it after cooling it becomes like a jam and difficult to dissolve in beverages.
  • Allow the syrup to cool and transfer in an airtight container and store for a week on outside cool place (or) Refrigerate and use for about a month.
  • Today I have prepared Strawberry lemonade using this syrup.
