How to make a raspberry simple syrup?

First, place the frozen raspberries, water, sugar, and lemon juice into a medium sized saucepan.

After that, place the pan over medium heat and bring the liquid to a simmer. Make sure to stir the ingredients until the sugar has fully dissolved.

The berry syrup has cooked down in the pan.

Next, let the berry syrup continue to simmer for another 9-minutes. If needed, reduce the heat to keep the liquid from coming to a full boil.

Then, once the syrup has cooked down a little, remove it from the heat and let it cool for about 15-minutes.

Raspberry Simple Syrup Recipe Tips:

  • You may want to strain the syrup twice just to make sure you’ve removed all the solid pieces.
  • Try to avoid letting the syrup boil; otherwise, it could stick and burn.
  • The longer the simple syrup cools, the more intense the flavor becomes.
  • To thicken the raspberry syrup, consider adding a corn starch slurry to the mixture just before it finishes cooking.
