How to Make Strawberry Simple Syrup from Spinach Tiger

The summer heat came in Spring this year in Nashville. I don’t like heat. I like beach breezes and weather I can run long distances in.

I learned, however, that early heat has it’s good side. The strawberries at the farmer’s markets were running over with organic, sweet, juicy strawberries and they are still coming.

I bought a gallon and half between three different farmers, but my best purchase was the gallon bucket from Kelley’s Berry Farm for $15 at the Tuesday market.

All week I thought about ideas for these strawberries. I wanted to make gelato, cocktails, a spicy strawberry sauce for chicken, and frozen jar. I did that here.

You can freeze your strawberries in jars, as long as you leave about an inch of room for expansion.

Make strawberry simple syrup.

I decided to make a simple syrup with strawberries because in all this heat, Strawberry Sangria sounded so refreshing.

If you have strawberries left over, make strawberry sauce.
