So Very Simple Homemade Blueberry Syrup

Jul8

This simple blueberry syrup is SO incredibly easy and delicious. Never go back to store bought again @beautyandbedlam

“Mom, how can the syrup be all gone? I have a plate full of pancakes s and no syrup?”

Syrup and gone were two words that I thought I’d never hear in the same sentence, but alas, my son was correct, and this equaled a first world problem in his mind.

The industrial size, never ending, gallon of syrup had been devoured which necessitated some quick improvisation.

Homemade Blueberry Syrup to the rescue.

Does the idea of making your own simple syrup scare you?

Trust me, it’s so incredibly easy and once you’ve given it a try, you may never go back. You can double or triple this recipe because it will keep in the refrigerator for up to one week.

Homemade syrup helps you avoid any additional preservatives, but if you are trying for a completely healthy syrup option, you can always substitute an alternative sweetener.

I served this simple blueberry syrup over my Homemade Blueberry Ricotta Pancakes , and I thought that I’d just pulled up to a restaurant table.

Trust me, if you have never made your own syrup, do it now. You will feel so Betty Crockerish and realize just how little effort it takes to make your family think you are so gourmet. :)

  1. Yummy! I have also mashed just plain fresh berries (strawberries or blueberries would work too) using a potato masher, or just squished them with my hands once when we were on vacation with no potato masher :)
