I started making this recently… I had seen how chefs in the Food Network prepared simple syrups using white sugar… but I do not use white sugar at all. Would I be able to replicate with brown sugar??
This is super simple to make and great to sweeten ice teas and natural juices made at home. At the Yoga Center we sometimes whip the brown sugar with water in a blender to make it easier to dissolve in a cold liquid, but this technique works well, especially if you’re not using the blender at all.
BROWN SUGAR SIMPLE SYRUP
3 cups of brown sugar 3 cups of water
- Mix together the brown sugar and the water in a large sauce pan.
- Bring to a quick boil and allow the brown sugar to dissolve well in the water. It’ll take about 10-15 minutes.
Allow to cool and use to sweeten your favorite cold drinks… like this Passion Fruit/Guava Fizzy drink.
