  1. Put all three ingredients in a saucepan and warm over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally until the sugar granules have dissolved.
  2. Once the sugar has dissolved, reduce the heat to medium-low and reduce until there is only about 1 cup of thickened liquid, about an hour.
  3. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely before using or storing. You can keep the homemade syrup in your fridge for up to six months.
