"Excellent syrup! I use a stick blender and stop pureeing sooner because I like my syrup a bit chunky. I also make extra and freeze for times when strawberries are not in season."

"This was a big hit! Poured it over the brown sugar oatmeal pancakes on this site, and everybody raved about it. Even had a little leftover that I plan on using over ice cream."

"This is very tasty! I added about 1/2 tsp of pure vanilla after it was finished. I loved it both ways. I have more strawberries so I'm going to try some variations!"

"Very good syrup. The consistency is watery but most fruit syrups are. Taste is perfect. I left the seeds and they don't bother me or my kids at all."
