Whoops ran out of syrup!

on March 28, 2010

So  we ran out of regular maple syrup and we cant get some more till payday.  That means no pancakes right? WRONGO! I made some homemade strawberry syrup with some frozen berries I have stuffed in the back of the freezer. It is Yummy. Maybe i will make chocolate chip pancakes for the syrup to go on. Or banana pancakes. MMMM.

Berry syrup

2 cups fresh or frozen berries. If you are gonna use strawberries and they are big slice em before measuring them.

1/2 cup of water

2 cups of sugar ( yes 2 don’t gawk at me just do it think of all the other crap you eat everyday. )

1-2 tbs of lemon juice.

Put it all in a saucepan.  bring to a boil then turn the heat down and simmer them  for a full 5 min.  Stir occasionally.  Let it cool and put it in glass containers of some kind then to the fridge. I had 2 old syrup jars readily available. Or put it on your pancakes or ice cream yum. Oh yeah I blended mine in the blender so I wouldnt have chunks. I wanted the smooth consistency
