Fruit Syrups

Unsweetened Blueberry Syrup

Unsweetened Blueberry Syrup 

Source: Whipped
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 cup
Put blueberries and water in a medium sauce pan and crush the berries with a potato masher. Bring to a boil and then lower to medium heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Strain the berries and return the syrup to the pan and cook for another 10 minutes to reduce and thicken the syrup. Remove from heat and cool.
Note: This recipe did not include any sugar since I used it in a cocktail with simple syrup. You can also enjoy this syrup over pancakes or yogurt. 

For sweeter, compote-style syrups...

Strawberry Syrup 

Inspiration: Emeril Lagasse
  • Basic simple syrup
  • 2 cups quartered strawberries
  • 3 tablespoons fresh orange juice (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated orange zest (optional)
