Berry Syrup

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen berries (any kind, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, black berries etc.)
  • 1/2 cup tap water
  • 2 cups sugar

In a 2-quart saucepan combine the berries, water and sugar. If the berries are big, like strawberries, cut them up first. If they are small like raspberries, blackberries and blueberries, leave them whole. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally, to prevent it from scorching to the bottom of the pan. Reduce the heat and simmer the mixture for five minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Store in a glass canning jar in the fridge. This is better hot, but still good cold. Makes about 3 cups.
