We had french toast for dinner tonight, and Kaia wanted Strawberry Syrup to go with it. Everyone was up for a little kitchen experiment, so I agreed to make some. The stove was already covered with french toast-making, so it was going to have to happen in the microwave. The best part was that Kaia actually made it all while I cut the greens off the strawberries! It turned out so yummy that I wanted to save our little recipe! So, here it is:
Microwave Strawberry Syrup Recipe
Warning: it is sweet, but the strawberry flavor is real!
- 1-pound bucket of strawberries
- about 2/3 a cup each of the following: sugar, corn syrup, and water
1- Cut the greens off the strawberries and cut the strawberries in 4-6 pieces each.
2- Add the sugar, corn syrup, and water to the strawberries in a 2-quart microwaveable container. Stir it all together and mash the strawberries a bit.
3- Cook in the microwave for 2 minutes. Stir and mash one more time.
4- Cook in the microwave for another 5 minutes.
You can put it in the refrigerator--it will thicken when it is cool, but we just ate it warm. Mmmmm!
