Introduction: Old Style Raspberry Syrup

Hungarian Grandma's style, I should say, as this is what I learned from my husband's late grandmother. So good, so fresh, so perfect for hot summer days.

Different household has their own method in making raspberry syrup. In this recipe we added extra water in the making, while others like it thicker.

These syrups are to be stored in the fridge or cooler room (if you'd like them to be stored away for winter, a different method, where you heat the bottles and such, is needed to preserve them).

Step 1: Ingredients and Method

For every 1 L of raspberry juice, you will need:

1 kg sugar

1 tsp of tartaric acid (can be bought online on amazon.com or even at grocery stores).

Wash freshly picked raspberries, and place them in big bowl

Start breaking (somewhat mashing), with your palms, to produce the juice

Add in sugar a little at a time and some water (just enough, optional, only if you'd like to produce a little thinner syrup), stir to combine.

Add in tartaric acid, stir, and let rest mixture, covered with a thin clean cloth overnight, in a cool place.

Filter juice mixture using a cheese cloth or thin tulle and allow to drain well (this takes hours or even a day long).

Your syrup is ready to be stored in bottles.

To serve: pour syrup into a glass and add water and ice, or just cold water.

Enjoy~

You gave the amount of sugar and acid but not how many berries. I realize that is not specific but something in quarts, kilos or pounds would be helpful

measurement for the berries is always depending on the size of the berries. sometimes we need at least 5 cups of berries, sometimes more and other time is less, so one cannot always tell, thus it states for each liter of the juice as it is impossible to have exact measurement due to the differ size of berries as they make up the weight.

This looks so simple, and so good!

Do you use it for anything else? (over waffles, etc?)

Oh, never! Hahaha, thank you for the idea! I never thought of that. We have a glass or two for lunch or whenever, most of the times, or for shaved ice for the kids. But I should try for waffle or pancakes now too. Thanks!
