Homemade syrup has not preservatives in it so, depending on the sugar concentration, will probably only last a couple weeks. But good syrup should never reach its life expectancy. :)

You're right! The day after I made it the pectin in the fruit set up and made my syrup into a nice little jelly. An unexpected surprise that made for some delicious peanut butter and jelly sammies yesterday. My husband is in heaven :)

That's a happy accident! For next time, leave out the pectin if you really want syrup instead of jelly or jam.

I was refering to the natural pectin in the fruit. I did not add any to the syrup but it set up very nicey on it's own. I've done this with strawberries and apples for a quick jam in the past. Very easy and very nums.
