How Long Does Rosemary Simple Syrup Last?

Rosemary simple syrup will keep for about 2 weeks in an airtight jar in the refrigerator. Before using the simple syrup, check to see if there is any mold growth around the 2 week mark.

Why Does Simple Syrup Need To Be Refrigerated?

Yes! Keep your simple syrup refrigerated in an airtight container. Fridges are designed to slow down the aging of food and lengthen its shelf life by inhibiting microbial growth. The refrigerator will also aid in the stabilization of your simple syrup.

Will Simple Syrup Freeze?

Simple syrups can be frozen, which will make it last longer. 

A good idea is to freeze it in ice trays to make small cubes, then you can use the amount you need for each glass.  Remember, to thaw first!

How Long Does Simple Syrup Last In The Freezer?

You can freeze the simple syrup- while hot or at room temp- for up to a year.  Due to the high sugar content, it may not totally freeze.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary

Instructions

  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the water and sugar.
  2. Cook, stirring often, until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  3. Remove from heat and add the rosemary sprig to the saucepan.
  4. Allow to cool completely, then discard the rosemary.
  5. Pour the simple syrup into a bottle with a lid, or other airtight container.

Notes

  • Be sure to remove the pan from the heat completely before adding the rosemary to the simple syrup. Rosemary will turn black if cooked, so you’ll want to steep it in the liquid without continued heat.
  • To make a larger batch of simple syrup, you can double or triple this recipe. Keep in mind that simple syrup should maintain a 1:1 water/sugar ratio.
