- Adjust the amount of sugar and water to match the amount of pits you have. Just use twice as much sugar and water by volume as you have pits.
- For stronger syrup, use just enough water to cover the pits and an equal amount of sugar.
- I like to let the flavors deepen for about a week, then strain the rest into an ice cube tray and freeze. Pop out the flavor cubes after they freeze solid and store in a jar or freezer-safe container.
