  1. This just didn't work for me The spices were fine but it was kind of watery even tho' I cooked the sugar and water until "syrupy"
  2. I made a trial run of this today hoping I could put this in my Christmas baskets this year as pancake syrup. I did subtract two tbsp. water and added two tbsp. lemon juice. To make this a little thinner I ran the berries through the blender coarsely chopping them. I like it just the - Read more ...
  3. Very easy and tasty! I made this to serve with/over cream cheese-filled crepes. I can't wait to see what else it's good on:)
  4. This is a ggreat recipe. Simple savory and sweet. But I saved on the sugar calories by using 1/4 cup sugar to one pound of strawberries 1/4 teaspoon of stavia instead. Thanks for this great idea.
  5. 5 Stars Plus!!! YOWZA!!! I made this exactly except that I made one error which I may continue to keep on doing! I put vanilla ice cream and the strawberries in a desert dish and poured the syrup over that while the syrup was still very warm (stupid move I now know - but we - Read more ...
  6. Delicious! This was so easy to make. At first I was a tiny bit worried about pouring brownish warm syrup all over my delicious freshly picked unsuspecting strawberries--but I'm glad I did!

  8. A nice and easy way to dress up strawberries. I used Splenda instead of sugar and the consistency was weird so I wouldn't recommend the substitution. Pairs nicely with light Cool Whip for a low calorie desssert!
  9. What a great idea! It reminded me of the way my mom used to prepare strawberries for us as kids. Just sugar water and let the sliced strawberries soak for a few hours in the fridge. Making it into a "syrup" with cinnamon and nutmeg definitely gives it a kick. I served it in a - Read more ...
  10. This is wonderful!!! I made it exactly as above only increased the syrup to one and a half batches (we like extra syrup)! I also added a small package of blueberries to the strawberries. Put a scoop of vanilla ice cream on pound cake and topped it with the berries. This is a keeper.
