So we will again be giving only hand-made gifts for Christmas this year. A lucky few will receive a jar of mulberry preserves. The rest will get by on some peach, strawberry, and/or cherry wine. And now, added to the list, is blueberry syrup. My sister gave me some store-bought blueberry syrup a few years ago with some super-de-duper waffle mix. I really enjoyed that gift, so I did my dangedest to recreate the syrup she had given me. (I'll work on the golden waffle mix later). Here's the recipe:
7 cups pureed blueberries
2 cups water
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Combine and bring to a boil- hold it for 5 minutes or so.
4 cups water
5 cups sugar
Combine and bring to boil- hold until about 219 degrees.
Combine the two syrups, bring to a boil and hold for 1 minute.
Hot water process for 30 minutes.
We had it on pancakes this morning- it will be equally as delicious on waffles or crepes or your breakfast carb of choice.
I am going to go assist my hubby in the cutting in of the playroom paint job, (don't worry, the window is open) and then go take a nap.
