Blueberry Syrup

Fresh Blueberry Syrup is so easy to make, and is one of my favorite ways to enjoy buttermilk pancakes or a big bowl of ice cream.

Homemade Blueberry Syrup

I am a sucker for flavored fruit syrups, but I can never bring myself to actually buy them at the grocery store. Have you ever checked out the ingredients on the back?

This blueberry syrup has all real ingredients. It is simple to make, super flavorful, and is a great topping for your favorite buttermilk pancakes, ice cream, or even cheesecake.

I made this just this morning, and it was a huge hit with all the kids. I am going to make a double or triple batch of this next time to keep in the freezer, or to can the next time we are on a canning binge.

Start with a pint of washed and picked through berries. Buy them on sale in bulk and cook up a big batch! If you really want to get berry-licious, toss some in the pancakes as well.

Blueberries

Toss those into a small saucepan along with 1/2 cup of water, 1/2 cup of sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, and the juice of 1/2 a lemon.

Bring that up to a simmer, and stir frequently. This syrup develops the most beautiful color.

Let this mixture reduce by half, and then add 1 tsp of cornstarch slurry (that’s just a teaspoon of cornstarch mixed with enough cold water to make it pourable) and let it thicken the syrup. You can skip this step if you like yours to be a bit thinner, but I prefer a thick, spoonable syrup.

This was great poured over my buttermilk pancakes! I will include a recipe for a smaller batch than the Corner Diner Pancakes I have posted. The recipe is a bit awkward to half, so I reduced it MY way. It made for a slightly different pancake, which I quite liked!

I wish you could taste this right now. I’m going to be tasting it again later on some fresh vanilla ice cream!

I love blueberries on my pancakes - I actually prefer them poured over the top of plain pancakes as opposed to baked into them. This looks scrumptious! And putting it on vanilla ice cream is even better. I'm definitely making this next time blueberries are in season!
