The sun’s coming up earlier these days, which is all the reason you need to make yourself a fabulous breakfast. Whether you want waffles, pancakes, greek yogurt, or even cereal, this blueberry syrup is the perfect topping. When you’re headed out the door, dribble a few spoonfuls into your water bottle to give your morning H2O a bit of extra sweetness.
Recipe adapted from Aimée Wimbush-Bourque of Simple Bites
5 c blueberries, washed and crushed
1 c water
1 c sugar or neutral honey
1 lemon, zest and juice
1 cinnamon stick
Add blueberries and water to a pot. Bring your mixture to a boil slowly, then simmer for 10 to 15 minutes.
Remove from heat. Strain solids from juice, and return juice to the pot. You can save the blueberry solids for smoothies or pie, if you like.
Add lemon zest, sugar, and cinnamon stick to juice, and simmer until the mixture begins to thicken. Add lemon juice, and boil for one more minute. Remove lemon zest and cinnamon stick. Pour syrup into clean jars and refrigerate, or can in a water bath for 10 minutes.
