How to make a Simple Syrup ~ In a small saucepan, bring equal parts sugar and water to a boil; simmer until the sugar is dissolved, 3 minutes. When everything has dissolved, I add whatever fruit, herb, spice I’m wanting to infuse my syrup with and let all ingredients steep together until you’ve reached your desired flavor level of that added ingredient.  Remove from the heat and let cool completely.  Once cooled, strain.  The syrup can be refrigerated in a glass jar for up to 1 month.
