Sugar Syrup

This is my master recipe for sugar syrup which we will use many times within my recipes. If you live in the Middle East you can buy this already made but this is simple and you can all make it at home and have as well. This stores well in your fridge for later usage as well.

2-1/2 cups sugar
1-1/2 cups water
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon rose water
1 teaspoon blossom water

1.In a 2 quart saucepan heat sugar and water and bring to a full boil on high. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring. Stir in lemon juice and simmer for 1 minute. Set aside to cool then add rose and blossom water.

Yields: 4 cups

    Salam alaikum wa ramatulah wa barakatu sister Noor, This tastes exactly like the local Syrian pastry shop a’sl as my husband calls it. I will make the syrup this way if I’m looking to be totally authentic.
