I just read another of many instructions for making simple syrup. The ingredients and process is always the same but the recommended storage time in the refrigerator is all over the place: 3 days, a week, 2weeks, a month.
Which one is correct? And if I stored boiled sugar and water in a clean container in the refrigerator, what can happen to it? Does it "go bad" and, if so, what would be the indication(s) that it had? It seems to me that it should last almost indefinitely but I don't remember ever seeing this stated.
This has bugged me for a long time- please enlighten me!
