Strawberry syrup with mint

Strawberry syrup with mint

I don't care about the quantities. Until the fruit is clean, at least a third "evaporates".

Clean and wash the strawberries. Put in a double-bottomed stainless steel pan and sprinkle with 1 kg of sugar.

After 3-4 hours they will leave the juice.

Put the pot on the fire, bring to a boil [10 min].

Using a polish, collect the more liquid part in another stainless steel bowl.

Depending on the amount obtained, add 700gr of sugar / kg of strawberry juice.

squeeze the juice from a lemon, a few fresh mint leaves and stir until the sugar dissolves.

Put the syrup in clean bottles with a tight lid and let them "rest" for a day - two in a bed [I put beds and duvet] that keeps warm.

Take out the liqueur at the "interval" when the least loving people are expected. I mean now would be the time !!!


In recent years I have made mint syrup every year, from mint planted in the garden. In addition to the syrup, we also put dried leaves for tea. The mint syrup recipe is very simple and not expensive.

We are consumers of natural syrup and in addition to the mint syrup, we also make dandelion syrup and shock flowers. We put dried leaves for the winter and make tea from them.
For mint syrup collect the leaves and clean the yellow or badly damaged leaves and wash. It is also kept in the tail because it has a lot of aroma in it.
For a liter of water you need a kilogram of sugar, 450 grams of mint and two lemons.

Steps for making the syrup:
In a saucepan / pot put water and sugar on the fire and mix until it melts. When it boils, add the leaves, the juice from one lemon and the slices from the other. Stir for another minute, then turn off the heat and allow to cool.
When it is cooled, put it in the fridge until the next day. The next day the syrup is strained, there are no more impurities and it is boiled for another hour on low heat to thicken. When thickened, turn off the heat and pour into bottles until still hot. Mint syrup is kept at a cool temperature. We keep it in the cellar and it keeps well until next season.

Below I put the film made this year when I prepared the mint syrup and pictures with each stage of preparation:

How do we make mint syrup at home. Simple and quick recipe, all natural.

I received several recurring questions. Here are the answers:

1. Yes, it binds with gauze and lasts 2-3 years! The syrup breathes through the gauze and evaporates a little forming a gelatinous layer on the surface, similar to a natural stopper.

2. It has a lot of sugar because it is SYRUP (not juice)! In a large glass pour 1 finger of syrup and dilute with plain water, mineral or soda.

3. I would not replace sugar with honey because it tastes like medicine. In addition, honey can trigger an unwanted fermentation process.

4. Lemon salt is crystallized, concentrated citric acid. Citric acid exists naturally in all fruits (especially citrus fruits) and is formed in the human body as a result of reactions (read here). Lemon juice contains citric acid but diluted and does not help me with this recipe. In addition, it diverts its taste and aroma.

5. Risk 10 lei: 4 lei costs 1 kg of strawberries and another 6 lei costs 2 kg of sugar and you get 3.5 L of concentrated strawberry syrup.

Recipe of mint syrup it's easy to make and it's worth a try, especially since you can turn it into a delicious drink by adding mineral or plain water, ice cubes and lemon slices. This spring I planted some herbs in my garden, including mint. Because it rained a lot this year, the mint bush grew big and beautiful. So big that I had to think about what to do with it.

I kept putting tea and lemonade, but I still had a long way to go and I didn't want it to dry out. So I took a pair of scissors and started to cut the green and fragrant branches. I got a good handful of mint which I thought I would turn into a delicious mint syrup. You can also use it for lemonade or for various desserts and cocktails.

For a successful mint syrup, you need freshly picked mint that you wash well in cold water to remove dust and any insects from the leaves. Then you have to make a simple syrup, from water and sugar in which to infuse the mint leaves. The more mint you use, the more aromatic the syrup will be. I got a light amber syrup. In no case will it turn green, to get a green syrup, you must put a little green dye in the syrup.

I omitted the dye because I wanted to get a syrup as natural as possible. Mint syrup is put in bottles and stored in the refrigerator for about a month. To have it in the winter, pour the syrup into sterilized bottles that close tightly and keep them in a cool place. Serve the syrup exactly as you like, with mineral or plain water or add it to the lemonade.

My dear ones, last time I showed you my recipe for Strawberry jam . Now I want to share with you the strawberry syrup recipe. Delicious and natural. Strawberry syrup is extremely fragrant and can successfully replace commercial carbonated juices that are full of all kinds of dyes and preservatives.

To make a successful strawberry syrup, you need very well ripened strawberries, preferably Romanian because they are sweeter, which you can boil with enough water to cover and boil until the strawberries are very soft and light in color. Then remove the strawberries and strain the liquid to obtain a strawberry juice as clear as possible.

Then weigh the juice and add sugar in the same amount as the liquid. That is, for 2 liters of strawberry juice add 2 kg of sugar. Bring the liquid back to the boil and stir continuously until the sugar melts. Then boil the syrup for a maximum of 20 minutes and it can be put in bottles. According to your preference, you can make syrup from different combinations of fruits, strawberries with kiwi, strawberries with strawberries or strawberries with cherries.

If you want to keep it over the winter, pour the syrup into sterilized bottles and screw the lid very well. Allow the syrup to reach room temperature, then keep it in a cool place, in the pantry or cellar. Serve the syrup with mineral or plain water and ice cubes. You can also try my shock syrup recipe, which is just as aromatic and delicious, or you can add strawberry syrup in mint with mint
