One of my favourite things in the summer is all of the fresh berries and a great way to enjoy them is in a fresh homemade syrup, like this blueberry syrup! This weekend I was making a blueberry syrup and I could not resist taking some new photos to update this recipe with. Berry syrups could not be easier to make! You simply simmer some berries, in this case blueberries, along with sugar and water before straining away the solids and letting it cool. I like to use this blueberry syrup on pancakes, waffles, french toast, etc in addition to using it as a sweetener in things like blueberry lemonade or blueberry iced green tea! No matter what you use blueberry syrup in or on, it will bring the amazing freshness of summer along with that intense blueberry flavour!
A quick and easy blueberry simple syrup that is perfect for everything from smothering pancakes to using in drinks like blueberry lemonade!

- 1 cup water
