  1. Place strawberries into a heavy saucepan, add water, and bring to a boil. Stir, reduce heat to low, and simmer until strawberries soften, about 15 minutes.
  2. Strain juice into a separate saucepan, using a fine mesh strainer; discard strawberry pulp. Stir in sugar until dissolves. Bring strawberry juice back to a boil a second time.
  3. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 5 minutes. Skim any foam from the top of the syrup. Turn off heat and let cool to room temperature.
  4. Pour syrup into a lidded container and refrigerate.

Made this for our sodastream. Love it, instead of sugar I used a no calorie sweetener. :)

Simply awesome. .. I used Splenda. ... so I didn't reheat the second time. ... Splenda dissolves without the need to reheat.... and slipped up and forgot to cut them into smaller pieces. .... still turned out great. ... now I just need to experiment with heating times to make it more concentrated. ... so I can use it in my 6 to 1 ratio soda fountain.

Very yummy! I became addicted to McDonalds strawberry iced tea,but it was getting to be an expensive habit. I decided to find a recipe for strawberry syrup to make my own tea and this one fit the bill! I didn't add the whole two cups of sugar, but cut it down to 1 1/2 cups as I don't like things too sweet. Perfect, perfect perfect. Will be using this recipe again and again.
