Important tips you should know about syrup making

  • Stir gently only with a wooden spoon because a wooden spoon doesn’t conduct the heat. A metal spoon can induce crystallization as it conducts heat in local areas it touches. After the syrup is cooked then you can use any type of utensil to extract it from the pot.
  • The glucose and the lemon juice in the Cherry syrup help to prevent crystallization and also help with the preservation of the syrup.
  • If you preserve the syrup in an air-tight sterilized jar it can last for more than a year at room temperature.

Where and how to use your cherry syrup

  • You can add 3 Tbsp Cherry syrup to a glass of water and have a delicious Cherry drink!
  • 1 or 2 tsp are enough for a bowl of ice cream.
  • For cocktails ratio, it depends on your creations but you can start with 2 Tbsp. Try it on vodka and cherry!
