Strawberry Syrup

Strawberry Syrup...new recipe. I was so excited to find this here. This is going to be an awesome recipe to add to my canning! I made a few changes here for me, but you can use the original recipe.

My batch made 5 pints.

6 cups of strawberries (makes 3 1/2 cups pureed)
3 cups water (See directions on divisions)
strip of lemon peel
2 1/2 cups sugar
3 1/2 cups corn syrup
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Puree strawberries in VitaMix. Combine 1 1/2 cups water, strawberrry puree and lemon peel in a medium saucepan. Simmer five minutes, them remove lemon peel. Combine sugar and 1 1/2 cups in a bigger saucepan. Boil to 260 degrees. (we only boiled it until it was between 255 and 260, when we let it get to 260 it crystallized into sugar) Add strawberry juice mixture and corn syrup to boiled sugar. Boil four minutes. Stir in lemon juice. Ladle into hot jars, saving 1/4 inch head space.

Process 10 minutes in canner.
