1 Cup White sugar
1 Cup Water


  • Combine the water and sugar in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce to a simmer and stir until sugar dissolves, then immediately take the saucepan off the heat. 
  • Let cool, then pour into a container (a Mason jar works nicely) and store in the refrigerator for up to one month. 

Mix it Up

A 1:1 syrup made of equal parts water and sugar is standard, but feel free to augment the ratio as required by recipes or for personal taste.
