Is anyone else as strawberry obsessed as we have been lately??

I originally posted this recipe back in December of 2009. Strawberries in December? Yeah, I know – it doesn’t make much sense. Because strawberry recipes are made for the spring and summer, and this Strawberry Syrup Recipe is one that I make all summer long.

I’m blaming our recent strawberry obsession on Easton. There have been times through his treatment so far when he’s had to take multiple medicines at home. And since he’s never swallowed a pill before (he’s only 5 years old, for goodness sake) his medications have all been liquid. And we all know how delicious oral medications are, right?

So what he started doing is chasing the medicine with strawberries. It’s funny, because at first, I tried m&ms, but he wanted strawberries and has stuck with them this whole time. There was even a month of one medication that he had to take on an empty stomach, but he still wanted strawberries that he could at least smell while he took his medicine.

So yeah, even though we aren’t even in prime strawberry season yet, we have had them on hand for the last 3 months. And now that they are starting to get good and sweet and full of flavor, I’ve been going crazy for them, too. So I decided to make up a batch of this Strawberry Syrup Recipe to have on hand. But don’t think that this is only good drizzled over pancakes. It’s amazing on ice cream, and even perfect for making some delicious drinks. (In a few weeks, I’ll be showing you one that you must make this summer!) It is super versatile, so it’s great to have on hand.

I know I’m going to have a jar of this on hand all summer long!

Serves: 3 cups
Ingredients
  • 4 cups strawberries, diced
  • 2 cups sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon fresh lemon juice
Instructions
  1. Place the strawberries in a blender or food processor and process until smooth. Press through a fine mesh sieve into a medium saucepan to remove all seeds. Discard seeds.
  2. To the strawberries, add the sugar and place over low heat. Stir until the sugar has dissolved, then increase the heat to medium and bring to a boil. Boil for 5 minutes. Skim any foam off the top of the mixture with a spoon. Remove from the heat and stir in the lemon juice.
  3. Place in a jar and refrigerate until cooled. The mixture will thicken as it cools.

    Mmm pancakes! They look amazing!

  2. Mary says:

    The pancakes and the syrup look amazing.

  3. Barbara says:

    I have to fess up and admit I have never had anything but maple syrup on pancakes. This looks great- next time pancakes are on the menu, I'm going to make this.

  4. Oh that precious boy…my kiddos are the WORST when it comes to taking liquid medicine. I can’t imagine how hard it is to deal with that nasty stuff so often.

    This syrup is gorgeous — your photos are stunning! I make a big brunch after church every Sunday, and I’m adding this to our list for the next time I do pancakes 🙂

  5. Chels R. says:

    Strawberry syrup is the best! And ugh, meds on an empty stomach is the worst. I would want you to make this for me too! 😉

  6. Sheryl says:

    Easton is such a brave boy. My son really hates taking meds when he is sick. He’s still 2 y.o. so I understand. This is such a brilliant idea. Thanks for this Deborah.

  7. Your son is such a brave boy!! My kids are the worst at taking meds. Love this syrup and love your photos!

  8. Barbara Martin says:

    How long will the syrup last? Guess I could store in the refridgerator. I’ll have to make some since the strawberry season is here.

    • Deborah says:

      I have kept it up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator. We usually go through it all before that point, though. 🙂

  9. Debbie says:

    When do you add the lemon juice? It doesn’t say in the recipe directions. Do you stir it in after it’s boiled?

  10. This could be used on just about anything! I love the idea of it being a drink mix-in. If I offered this to my boys as a medicine chaser, they’d want medicine every day! How cute that your son liked his strawberry chaser. Whatever it takes!!
