Simple Concepts: To make simple syrup, add equal parts water and sugar to a small pot. Cook over low heat until sugar has completely dissolved. And as always, Simple Conceptions uses organic ingredients. For quality assurance and optimal results, Chef Jean Paul suggests following the recipes as written using the products mentioned. Also, to maximize the flavors, chill ingredients prior to mixing.
