Thanks to picking
Then, I tried Emeril's recipe from the Food Network. It has some pretty spectacular reviews, but it still wasn't what I was hoping for. It did taste different than the first (in a good way!) because there is a different ingredient than the first recipe: strawberries (diced), orange juice and zest. Again, I was hoping for a more syrup consistency.
|Pictures are of Emeril's recipe only, simply because the final products are too hard to distinguish in a photo. They just taste a little different.|
I wanted to try this recipe from food.com but needed to save strawberries for other recipes. And frankly, I was tired of cutting/hulling, boiling/simmering and being bummed to have two more pints of strawberry jam-like "syrup", in addition to the multiple jars of jam Grammy gave me. The photo with the food.com recipe looks more like the syrupy texture I was hoping for.
Maybe next berry picking round! Anyone have any tips or a killer syrupy, syrup recipe I could try?
