Every so often, I invent or read about or discover a food thing that I then become obsessed with. This week, friends, that thing is simple syrup.
Simple syrup is a fancy term for sugar water, and it’s typically used to flavor cocktails or other drinks like soda and coffee.
My simple syrup kick started around Thanksgiving, when I had a bunch of sage in my fridge that needed to get used up. I decided to steep it in a standard simple syrup mixture, which is typically 1 part water to 1 part sugar.
