The Line Between Simple and Stupid…

…is crossed when you spend money on this product.

I found the item above on the clearance table at the Williams-Sonoma store in Princeton, New Jersey. That, boys and girls, is a bottle of simple syrup that you can purchase for the low, low price of $3.99 — a deal, mind you, because it’s marked down from $6.99. Sure, Williams-Sonoma is fun for some window shopping and general inspiration whenever you don’t feel foodie enough. It’s always a blast to poke around the gadgets, drool over the Le Creuset that you can’t afford and marvel over the fact that someone is actually willing to drop fifty bucks on a popsicle machine.  (Isn’t that what your freezer is for?)  But this is going too far.

In these tough economic times, let me save you some of your hard-earned money:

One part table sugar.  One part water.  Boil until dissolved.  Cool.  Use. That’ll be seven dollars.

    I agree, simple syrup is by name one of the easiest preparations, and they sell it for a huge mark up!

    Bon appetit!

    Yeah, and you can also do so many wonderful infusions in the simple syrup. I added rosemary and made a Tuscan Lemon Drop!
