This week I'm sharing a blackberry simple syrup. It can be frozen into cubes, but I use it for sweetening up lemonade (which I did today), iced tea and occasionally with some carbonated water. So yummy!!
Blackberry Simple Syrup
2 pints blackberries
5 cups water
2 cups sugar
In a large saucepan, bring the water and sugar to a boil. Lower the heat to medium and add your blackberries, stirring occasionally for 5-7 minutes. Take the saucepan off the heat and use a masher to squish up the fruit. Allow the liquid to cool, then strain and pour into a quart sized bottle. This refrigerates well for a little over a week.
