Making a simple syrup is exactly that....simple! Equal parts liquid to sugar. But instead of just using water and sugar, I love to make a lemon simple syrup. Equal parts fresh lemon juice to sugar.
Gently simmer over medium heat, stirring continuously until all the sugar has dissolved. Then let it cool and store in an airtight container for up to three weeks in the refrigerator. You can use this to brighten and sweeten up a stone fruit galette, make lemonade, or a delicious lemon drop martini! There are so many ways to use it... you will be glad to have it on hand in your fridge!
