I got 4lbs of blueberries free as a special offer with my groceries – yum! I’ve munched my way through over 2lbs of them so far(!), but thought it might be good to try some blueberry recipes.
1 cup fresh blueberries
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
- Bring ingredients to a boil in a saucepan.
- Simmer for a few minutes until the berries are soft.
- Squash the berries with a potato masher or the back of a spoon.
- Either serve as is, or push the syrup through a sieve with the back of a spoon to filter out the skins.
After straining, I was left with just under 2/3 cup of fresh blueberry syrup. Simple, and delicious served over pancakes!
the color of the syrup is gorgeous! blueberries are so pretty and and so good for you.
thanks for the easy recipe!
Lucky you!! I have NOT seen fresh or even frozen blueberries here in Saudi. 🙁
oh how lucky you are to get so much blueberries.
love them, they are delish.
MMMM pancakes and syrup!
Good question! The sugar will act as a preservative, so I should think it would keep for a couple of weeks in a closed container in the fridge.
Oh June I just may have to try this one…
Mmm, blueberry syrup.
Here’s a dumb question – how long do you think this would keep? Like, could one potentially put some in a jar and save it in the fridge for a week or two? Or is this more of a use-it-or-toss-it sort of scenario?
