Simple Syrup

Any southern cook worth their salt knows the value of classic sweet tea.  It’s an iconic beverage to serve on a hot and humid day, which we have a lot of in Tampa, FL!  To make the most delicious sweet tea possible, Simple Syrup is required.  It is the best way to sweeten tea … because the sugar is already dissolved.  You can add as little, or as much, of the sweet syrup as you prefer.  A refrigerated batch in an airtight container will stay fresh for up to 2 weeks!
