What can I make with raspberry syrup?

Well, you can make a lot of tasty treats. Take a look at the list below for some ideas.

Frozen raspberries, sugar, and water in a saucepan.
Don’t worry about thawing the berries, frozen raspberries work just fine.

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.
Now that the syrup has cooked, it just needs to cool before straining it.

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.

The syrup being strained into a measuring cup.
Once strained, you should have about 2-cups (16-ounces) of the raspberry syrup.

Last, strain the raspberry simple syrup to remove the fruit and seeds. It can be stored in your fridge for up to 7-days in a sealed container.

That’s it, the recipe is done! Kim and I hope you enjoy this syrup and we wish you all the best 🙂

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.
