Question: making mint simple syrup

pitu | | Feb 14, 2009 01:42 PM

If you were making minty simple syrup with fresh mint, would you . . .
make tea with the fresh mint and boiling water, then add the sugar and reduce to syrup
or
combine the fresh mint, sugar, water and simmer it down together

Are there bitterness issues?

Any reason you would NOT use fresh mint?
THX!
