How To Make Sugar Syrup For Canning

September 29, 2011

One thing that I enjoy about canning my own fruits, is that I can control the amount of sugar used in the syrup. For most of my fruits, I use a super light syrup. It is up to you. 

Here is my recipe for making sugar syrup, from super light to heavy. I hope it is helpful!

To make syrup, bring ingredients to a boil over high heat. Stir to dissolve the sugar. 

Super light - 1/4 cup sugar to 5 3/4 cups water, to make 6 cups

Extra light - 1 1/4 cups sugar to 5 1/2 cups water, to make 6 cups

Light 2 1/4 cups sugar to 5 1/4 cups water, to make 6 1/2 cups

Medium 3 1/4 cups sugar to 5 cups water, to make 7 cups

Heavy 4 1/2 cups sugar to 4 1/4 cups water, to make 7 cups
