Mint syrup

by | Oct 23, 2018 | kitchen magic | 0 comments

Mint can spread like wildfire, even though I planted into a pot, it still left me with too much mint for the winter. Too much to dry, although I like mint tea very much. So this year I figured I try to do some mint syrup for variety. A syrup is when you cook the herb with sugar and water. A very simple way to preserve the plants, even though sugar has some bad reputation it is ok to enjoy some homemade syrup from time to time.

It is a good idea!

Mint in the pot

Mynt syrup ingredients

  • 1 cup mint leaves
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  1. Chop it up, stems and all.
  2. Boil the water with the sugar
  3. Pour the syrup over the mint.
  4. Stir it and cover. Don’t let the flavour escape with the steam.
  5. Let it sit and cool down.
  6. Strain it, pressing the mint with the back of a spoon to squeeze out as much syrup as you can.
