blueberry syrup

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.

Blueberry syrup

blueberry syrup and pancakes

Ingredients
1 cup fresh blueberries
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup water

Directions

  1. Bring ingredients to a boil in a saucepan.
  2. Simmer for a few minutes until the berries are soft.
  3. Squash the berries with a potato masher or the back of a spoon.
  4. 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!

    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.

  6. 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?
