What Is Simple Syrup?
Simple syrups are an easier way to blend a sweetener into cold drinks instead of using just plain sugar. This liquified form of sugar can be made plain or simmered with fruits to give the sweet syrup a specific flavor!
It can be tempting to just pick up a bottle of pre-made simple syrup at the store! But making it homemade guarantees that you get the exact flavor you want without all of the unnecessary add-ins that typically come from the store-bought version!
Trust me, this homemade simple syrup will take your Peach Iced Tea or Lemonade to a delicious level that store-bought won’t take it to!
Peach Simple Syrup is made by simmering down frozen peaches, granulated sugar, and water. Once the mixture has been reduced the contents are strained through a fine-mesh sieve and the liquid you’re left with is the simple syrup!
I find that when I make this Peach Simple Syrup I get the best results when using frozen peaches. Frozen peaches are harvested at their peak ripeness and then frozen, giving you the most consistent, delicious flavor!
Whereas fresh peaches can be a hit or miss flavor-wise, especially depending on where you live!
How To Make Peach Simple Syrup
- Simmer the frozen sliced peaches, granulated sugar, and water in a medium saucepan.
- Remove from the heat and let sit for 30 minutes to cool.
- Strain the syrup using a fine-mesh strainer into a bottle.
