Simple syrup is a basic ingredient that's good to have among your kitchen essentials. Keep it in the refrigerator for any time you need a shot of sugar.
Servings: Makes about 1 cup
Ingredients 2 cups raw cane sugar1 cup water
In a small saucepan, stir the sugar and water together. Heat over medium-high heat until boiling. Reduce the heat slightly and cook, stirring, until the sugar dissolves and the syrup is clear.
Let cool to room temperature. Use now, or cover and refrigerate indefinitely. An easy option is to store the syrup in a glass jar.
