What is Simple Syrup?

What is Simple Syrup? 
It is just sugar and water boiled together.
In cooking, a syrup or sirup is a thick liquid consisting primarily of 
a solution of sugar in water, containing a large amount of dissolved sugars.
A basic sugar and a simple syrup is made by stirring granulated sugar into hot water in a saucepan until the sugar is dissolved and then cooling the solution. Generally, the ratio of sugar to water can range anywhere from 1:1 to 2:1. 

How thick you want the sugar syrup to be, a ratio of sugar
to water can range between 1:1 to 2:1.
Simple syrup is 1 part sugar to 1 part water.
Syrup can be used as a sweetener. However, since it gels readily when pectin 

is added, its primary culinary use is as a base for fruit sauces, toppings, and preserves.
