Frequently asked questions:

How long will this syrup last for?

Sugar is used in cooking as a preservative— think jams and jellies, which are also called preserves. So simple syrups have a decent shelf life, when prepared and stored properly: made with very hot water and stored in a sterile container in the refrigerator. A 1:1 simple syrup like this one lasts only one month when refrigerated.

How should I store the syrup?

The recommended way to store simple syrup is to use an airtight container that’s been sterilized. The images in this post show the rose syrup in a simple corked bottle for the images, however I store all our syrups in airtight containers.
