● 1 kg strawberry grapes (seeds and peels removed)
● 500 g sugar
● 70 g water
● juice of 1/2 lemon
● 1 sprig rose geranium
Wash the grapes well.
Using a clean hair pin, remove the seeds and then patiently peel each individual grape.
Put the grapes in a large pot with the sugar, alternating one layer of grapes with one layer of sugar, add the water, cover the pot and leave it overnight.
In the morning, put the pot on low heat and simmer until the sugar has melted and the grapes have released their juices.
Increase the heat to medium and continue boiling until the syrup thickens, about 45-50 minutes.
Allow it to cool for 4 hours. During this time, it may release juices and thus water-down the syrup.
If this happens, put it back and boil on high heat.
Boil for about 10 minutes until the syrup reaches the desired consistency.
To see if the syrup has the desired consistency, put some syrup on a saucer and allow to cool.
Once it has cooled tilt the plate slightly and if it is not runny, the syrup is ready.
