Today I have another tasty and easy to make syrup for you, a fresh blackberry syrup! Homemade syrups could not be easier to make, where you simply simmer the blackberries along with sugar and water, along with a hit of lemon juice for extra freshness, until the flavour of the blackberries has been extracted before straining the solids. This blackberry syrup is perfect on pancakes, waffles, etc or used as a sweetener in drinks like teas. No matter what you use this blackberry syrup in, it’s sure to please!
