Have you ever tried to make your own homemade sirup?
If not … Then I think you should try it 🙂
It is really easy, and it contains very few ingredients.
Sirup can be made with all kinds of flavours. It is amazing – It’s all about using your creativity.
When it’s done, find a nice patent bottle for storage.
Sirup can be used for desserts – Especially pancakes .. Yum!
It’s kind a cool to serve your own homemade sirup, in a cute bottle at a brunch.
I mostly use sirup in cocktails – Gin & tonic.
It tastes so good 🙂 Pour it all into a cocktail shaker & just shake away.
When that’s done, you have a delicious & very cold cocktail with lots of taste ♥
Yield: 1 little bottle
- 3 branches of thyme
- 1 lemon (sqeeze it, so that you get 0,25 dl lemon juice)
- 70 grams of sugar
- 1 dl water
How to make it:
- Pour water, sugar & thyme in a pot & bring to a boil (High heat)
- Turn the heat a bit down & let it all simmer, until the sugar has dissolved – Aprox. 5 minutes
- Add the lemon juice, put a lid on the pot & leave to simmer for 20 minutes
(Or more, if you want a thicker consistency)
- Pour into small air tight bottles (Also add a branch of thyme) & use right away/next day or preserve it
(It will last very very long, if you do that)
⌈Read below, how I do⌋
I preserve, in a natural way, as I really want to avoid things in my food that is bad for me & my body.
It works perfectly & let your food fresh for a long time – And yes, you can feed it to your children.
There is not alcohol in your food, the jars are just fast washed with it.
I do this:
- I begin with scalding the bottles in hot water
- Then I turn on the oven, on 50 degrees (upper & lower heat)
- I put the bottles on a dishtowel (on a bakingplate) and put it in the middle of the oven
- After 15, take it out
- Pour a bit rum in one of the bottles and close the lid
- Shake it all around, and pour the rum into the next bottle.
Continue the procedure & at last pour the rum out in the zink
- Pour in sirup, put on the lid & store in the fridge (While it’s all still warm)
