Minty Mint Simple Syrup

1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 cup mint leaves

Sugar and Mint
In a saucepan, bring sugar and water to a boil. Stir to ensure that all the sugar has melted. Remove from the heat and add 1 cup of mint leaves. I also like to add the stems, since they too are very flavorful. Let steep for 10 minutes before straining, then just leave to cool. When cooled, pour in a glass bottle and keep refrigerated. Use when needed. This makes 1 cup of minty mint simple syrup.

Very Berry Blueberry Simple Syrup

1 cup sugar
1 cup water
½ cup blueberries, crushed

Blueberries and Sugar
Bring sugar and water to a boil. Stir to ensure that all the sugar has melted. Add ½ cup blueberries that you crush before adding to the boiling syrup. I find crushing the blueberries before adding to the boiling syrup gives the syrup that beautiful bold color. Boil for another 5 minutes, then remove from the heat and leave in the hot liquid for another 5 minutes before straining, then just leave to cool. When cooled, pour in a glass bottle and keep refrigerated. Use when needed. This makes 1 cup of very berry blueberry simple syrup.
