Spearmint Simple Syrup

This is a basic simple syrup recipe using spearmint. This made 7 1/2 pints. You can easily reduce this recipe for what you’d like. I’m sharing with the kids!

I got this idea from an email pointing me to FoodInJars.

Difficulty: Easy

Servings: 7 1/2 pints

Prep Time: 1 1/2 hours   Cook Time: 10 mins processing  


12 cups water
12 cups sugar
1/2 pound spearmint, leaves removed


Combine all ingredients in a non-reactive kettle. **

Bring to a full rolling boil.

Remove from heat and allow to steep for about an hour.

Strain the spearmint leaves from the syrup solution, pressing down on the leaves to get all of the liquid out.

Return to pot and return to a rolling boil for 3 minutes.

Fill prepared jars, wipe rims, place lid and ring on, and process in a Boil Water Bath for 10 mins.

** I’m sure you could steep the spearmint in the water first, measure the liquid and add same amount of sugar then continue on with the recipe.

    This sounds delicious, but at the risk of sounding stupid….can you give me ideas for how to use it? I can think of a few…as flavoring for tea, perhaps on ice cream, pancakes? I have an abundance of spearmint growing in my herb garden and have no idea how to use it other than as a tea.

    Melinda, I was just wondering the same thing. I bet it would be good with milk and some sort of alcohol… Baileys, maybe? I don’t know. Over chocolate icecream. In hot chocolate?
