Quick and easy homemade strawberry syrup, perfect for serving over waffles, pancakes, or ice cream. This makes approximately 2/3 cup syrup.
*Simmer time will vary depending on how much liquid was in your strawberries (old strawberries will produce significantly less liquid and therefore cook much faster). Pull the syrup from the heat as soon as it looks like it has started to thicken, even if that is only after a couple of minutes. Let it sit for a few minutes and if it is not thick enough, return it to heat to reduce further.
For perfectly clear syrup, skim the white froth off the top every few minutes. It has no effect on taste, but the syrup looks prettier without it.
