Strawberry syrup is like pure summer. And when you stash away extras in your freezer, you’ll be able to enjoy those tastes of sunshine even in January.
This recipe relies more on the natural sweetness of strawberries instead of buckets of sugar. You’re going to want to put this delicious sauce on everything!
How to Use Frozen Strawberries
You’ll love adding strawberry syrup to recipes like Strawberry Waffles, Strawberry Rhubarb Jam, Homemade Strawberry Ice Cream, on top of Fluffy Whole Wheat Pancakes, or Instant Pot Cold Start Yogurt. And of course, shortcake or pound cake, topped with lots of whipped cream is a summertime rite of passage.
Pro Tips/Recipe Notes
- Freeze your strawberries in syrup in smaller portions to make it easier to defrost. I love using 2 cup Souper Cubes, 16 oz wide-mouth canning jars (leave 1 inch of headspace at the top of the jar), quart freezer bags, or our vacuum sealer.
- Scrape a bit of vanilla seed (or use Vanilla Extract) and mix it into the strawberries for an even more delicious flavor.
- Honey can also be used but will not draw out as much juice as cane sugar.
- Stir in a bit of lemon or lime zest for a “zippier” flavor.
