Strawberry Simple Syrup

Strawberry Simple Syrup

Our strawberry patch did so well this year I had to freeze a bunch to keep up! I found a big bag of our home grown strawberries in the freezer this afternoon and decided to use some to make a strawberry simple syrup. It’s been so hot here lately, I figured my kids could make themselves a cream soda or lemonade with it to help cool down. I think I might use some for a strawberry margarita at the end of the week. YUM!
