  • 2 pounds very ripe strawberries, hulled and cut into chunks

  • 3 cups cold water

  • 2 cups white sugar


  1. Place strawberries into a heavy saucepan, add water, and bring to a boil. Stir, reduce heat to low, and simmer until strawberries soften, about 15 minutes.

  2. Strain juice into a separate saucepan, using a fine mesh strainer; discard strawberry pulp. Stir in sugar until dissolves. Bring strawberry juice back to a boil a second time.

  3. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 5 minutes. Skim any foam from the top of the syrup. Turn off heat and let cool to room temperature.

  4. Pour syrup into a lidded container and refrigerate.
