Blackberry Syrup

I had a bunch of blackberries to use up and thought that a Blackberry Syrup would be a healthy alternative to syrup great addition to the Lemon Ricotta Pancakes. To make the syrup is actually a very simple process (I guess that's why they call it "simple syrup"). Boil an equal ratio of sugar to water on the stove, and add enough fruit to flavor it.

INGREDIENTS
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 package of blackberries
DIRECTIONS
  1. Add the sugar, water and blackberries into a saucepan over high heat. Immediately begin to whisk together to get all the sugar dissolved and avoid clumps or burns.
  2. Once the mixture begins to boil, reduce the heat to low and allow it to simmer for about 10 minutes. Strain through cheesecloth into a glass jar and keep for a couple of weeks. Enjoy :)
