Blueberry Syrup

Jul 30, 2011 by

One of my favorite things to do in the summer time is visit farmers markets. Freshly picked fruits and vegetables that are beautiful and perfect, I can’t wait to get home and make something with my purchases.

Fresh blueberries from farmers markets are so plump and juicy, how can you not want to eat a handful?

This recipe for blueberry syrup couldn’t be simpler, it takes less than 15 minutes to create a sweet sauce perfect for pancakes, on top of ice cream or yogurt.

Ingredients:

2 1/2 cups blueberries (reserve 1/2 cup)
1/2 cup agave syrup (honey or sugar may be used too)
1/4 cup fresh orange juice or apple juice

In a large saucepan, combine 2 cups blueberries, agave and orange juice and simmer over low heat covered, for 10 minutes. Puree the mixture in a blender or food processor. Add the reserved 1/2 cup blueberries.

Once it starts to simmer, the aroma of the blueberries in your kitchen is amazing.

If you haven’t been to a farmers market yet this summer, I urge you to do so. It’s such a great experience to meet people passionate about what they do. AND, they are a great source for what to make with what they grow.
