Whoops ran out of syrup!

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
