So simple to make and really delicious, if you like mint. I like to serve it in a sauceboat to be used if wanted. Recipe from Fine Cooking Magazine.

Spearmint Syrup

1 small (3/4-oz.) bunch fresh spearmint
1 cup granulated sugar

Rinse the mint well & drain. Put the sugar in a small saucepan and place the mint on top. Crush the mint into the sugar with a wooden spoon to release its flavor. Add 1 cup water. Bring to simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently until the sugar is dissolved. As soon as the syrup starts simmering rapidly, remove it from the heat and set aside to infuse for 20 minutes. Strain, discarding the mint, and let cool to room temperature. Store in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
