Yields1 Serving

By Lifestyle Staff

 ½ cup water
 ½ cup raw sugar
 1 jalapeño, no stems and roughly chopped*
 1 1 lime, quartered
 Pinch of salt

Add all ingredients to a small non-reactive saucepan (stainless steel, tin or enamel), bring to a boil, then simmer for 45 minutes. Stir occasionally.


Once the mixture has cooled, strain the syrup, and pour the syrup through a funnel into a lidded glass container.


Can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one month.


*For less heat, jalapeño seeds can be removed before adding to the saucepan.
