Blueberry Season! Celebrating with simple Blueberry syrup

There was recently a sale of Blueberries and we got 5 lbs! Blue berries and Jesse’s (my husband) favorite berry. We froze a bunch of the right away to add to pancakes, muffins, etc. I wanted to make something a little bit more special so I tried out this Blueberry syrup. It was super quick and delicious.

We had it on Waffles the next day.

Blueberry Syrup
2 cups Blueberries
1 cup Sugar
1/3 cup water
1 TBSP Lemon Juice
1/2 tsp Cinnamon (ground)

Directions: Combine all ingredients in saucepan. Bring to a Boil, then simmer for 10 minutes (or until fruit is tender). Some of the blueberries were still whole so we mashed them up then pressed it through a strainer.

Funneled it into an old jar. Yum yum yum!

Recipe inspired by the Complete Book of Small-Batch Preserving

I really like this book. Small-Batches are perfect for me and Jesse, we don’t need 80 jars of anything since it’s just the two of us. Plus, we can try out many more recipes!
