How to Make Sugar Syrup?

Sugar syrup is also known as simple syrup or bar syrup. You can make sugar syrup by combining 2 cups of water and 4 cups of white sugar in a heavy bottomed saucepan. Heat the combination over medium heat while stirring constantly; you want to completely dissolve the sugar before it begins to boil. Take a pastry brush that has been dipped into a little bit of water to wash whatever grains of sugar there is sticking to the side of the pan. For about five minutes you want to cook the sugar or until it thickens. You don’t want to stir that mixture once it begins to boil. Take a candy thermometer and check the temperature. It needs to be about 245 degrees. Take the pot off the burner and let the sugar mixture stop bubbling before you use it for your recipes. You can find more information here:
