QHow do I make a sim­ple sugar syrup?

Bryan, via email.

A Com­bine 1 cup caster sugar with 1 cup wa­ter in a small saucepan. Gen­tly stir over a low heat un­til sugar is dis­solved. Bring to boil. Boil, with­out stir­ring, for 1 minute. Re­move from heat. Cool to room tem­per­a­ture. To flavour syrup, try adding the fol­low­ing once sugar is dis­solved – seeds from a vanilla bean, a long strip of lemon or or­ange rind, kaf­fir lime leaves or lemon­grass. (With the flat side of a large knife, press on the white part of the peeled stalk to bruise it.) Re­move the rind, leaves and lemon­grass once syrup is cooled. Store in a clean, screw-top jar in the fridge for up to one month. Great for fruit sal­ads, cock­tails, punch and desserts.
