Very yummy! I became addicted to McDonalds strawberry iced tea but it was getting to be an expensive habit. I decided to find a recipe for strawberry syrup to make my own tea and this one fit the bill! I didn't add the whole two cups of sugar but cut it down to 1 1/2 cups as I don't like things too sweet. Perfect perfect perfect. Will be using this recipe again and again. Read More

Simply awesome... I used Splenda.... so I didn't reheat the second time.... Splenda dissolves without the need to reheat.... and slipped up and forgot to cut them into smaller pieces..... still turned out great.... now I just need to experiment with heating times to make it more concentrated.... so I can use it in my 6 to 1 ratio soda fountain.

We made this recipe and absolutely love it. We used it for Summer lemonade. We used it in the fall over ice-cream. At Christmas, we made everything we could think of strawberry. It was great tasting and easy to make. Can't wait until next year to make more! Read More
