Directions

The strawberry syrup:
1.
 In a small saucepan set over medium heat, combine the water and sugar, and stir. Heat until the sugar dissolves. Once the sugar has dissolved, add the strawberries to the saucepan.
2. Simmer the strawberries and sugar mixture on low heat until the strawberries become very soft and the syrup has thickened, about ten minutes.
3. Strain the syrup into a glass measuring cup, and discard the strawberries (they’re delicious with greek yogurt). Place it in the refrigerator to chill completely.
