A homemade syrup tastes so much better than any artifically flavored syrup you buy in the store. Once you learn how to make a simple syrup you can get creative and make your own homemade cough syrup, pancake syrup or tasty dessert syrups!
HOW TO MAKE SIMPLE SYRUP OUT OF SUGAR
This sugar syrup is a simple base to use as a liquid sweetner. This recipe will make about 1 cup of syrup. You will need:
HOW TO MAKE SIMPLE SYRUP FROM HONEY
This is my much prefered recipe over a sugar syrup. Honey contains many healthy properties where as sugar contains none.
Use the same ratio as the sugar syrup. Boil the two cups water and while still very warm add 1 cup honey. Mix well and store in the refrigerator up to two weeks.
FLAVORED HOMEMADE SYRUP RECIPES
Split two vanilla beans lenghtwise and put into glass jar. After preparing the simple syrup pour the HOT syrup over the vanilla beans, cover and let stand for at least 8 hours. Strain and store in a glass jar.
Another option would be to add a couple teaspoons of PURE vanilla extract to your warm syrup and mix well. A sugar syrup will keep in the refrigerator up to one week and a honey syrup will keep up to two weeks.

HOMEMADE FRUIT SYRUP
Fruit makes great pancake or ice cream syrup. Get creative! You will need:
Garlic Cold and Flu Syrup
Garlic is a great antiviral, antibacterial, a decogestant and immune booster and combine it with honey which is soothing and antiseptic and you have a syrup to help prevent and combat cold and flu symptoms!
At the first sign of a cold or flu take 2-3 teaspoons 3 times a day.
Homemade Cough Syrup
Follow directions as with the garlic syrup. A great cough syrup without the side effects or nasty ingredients!
Here's some other herbs that can combat colds and flu. Don't forget that you can always combine the herbs for more potentcy. Try: Sage, Ginger, Horehound, Peppermint, black Cherry Bark or Elcampane. A pinch of cayenne pepper is also a great addition to any medicinal syrup but add it when you stir in the honey. Don't cook it.
