Homemade Blueberry Syrup is so very amazing that I’m surprised I haven’t tried making it before now.  And this flavored syrup is so easy that it only requires only 3 ingredients.

A few weeks ago, the hubby and I had to be in Town early, so after our appointment, we stopped in at one of American’s favorite breakfast houses for a bite to eat.     While we were awaiting our order, I was enjoying examining their array of flavored syrups.  Doesn’t it make breakfast so much more enjoyable to have choices of specialty syrups and toppings for pancakes, waffles or crepes? I felt like a kid in a candy store.
Of course, Blueberry Syrup is one of my favorites and I thought, how hard could this be to make!   We would love waking up out here at the Ranch and treating ourselves to a specially flavored syrup on our pancakes.  But not one of those “artificially” flavored ones, I wanted to make a flavored syrup using the real thing.  So after a few attempts, I accomplished just that.  And whether you use frozen berries or fresh berries, this Homemade Blueberry Syrup is easy and delicious and requires only 3 ingredients other than water.


This is such an easy recipe and it’s a shame we haven’t tried it before.  It’s so easy to have frozen blueberries around and to whip up this easy Homemade Blueberry Syrup for those amazing homemade pancakes or waffles
