A lovely syrup, a perfect addition to any dessert.



  • 300g strawberries
  • 200g granulated white sugar
  • 200ml water
  • Juice and rind of 2 lemons


Place all ingredients into a large pan.

Place on the stove.

Turn to a fairly high flame.

Stir mixture continuealy until the sugar has dissolved.

Strain the mixture through some muslin (muslin is the best option, but an old cotton pillowcase will do)

Mash the strawberry's left in the muslin to a pulp.

Mix the strained fluid and the strawberry mush.

You now have a strawberry syrup!
