Dale DeGroff taught us this simple syrup technique, which skips the typical heating and cooling process. Next up: Learn how to make cold-brew coffee with Chowhound’s easy recipe.
Game plan: For Demerara simple syrup, just substitute Demerara sugar for white.
- 1 cup cold water
- 1 cup granulated sugar
1Place water and sugar in a container with a tightfitting lid. Shake vigorously for 3 minutes. Let rest for about 1 minute. Shake again for 30 seconds. Store, sealed, in the refrigerator.
2Alternatively, you can heat the water and sugar in a small saucepan, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Cool completely and store, sealed, in the refrigerator.
