Sugar Syrup Recipe
2 cups water
2 cups sugar
Heat sugar and water together in a saucepan, until sugar dissolves. Stirring, bring to a boil and let boil for 4 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. Store syrup in a covered container in the refrigerator. Great for sweetening all kinds of coffee or tea drinks.
