Simple Blueberry Syrup Recipe #FlipTopFrenzyFree #Giveaway

 My family LOVES pancakes, waffles, and French toast…especially with syrup on top. We do enjoy maple syrup, but it’s always fun to mix things up and try new things.  We have 2 huge (9-10 foot tall) blueberry bushes that produce gallons and gallons of berries each year that we cannot consume all of, so what’s not shared with family and friends or enjoyed by us is frozen for use in winter.  One of our favorite uses for our frozen berries is Blueberry Syrup.  This blueberry syrup recipe post is brought to you by our friends at Domino Sugar through our affiliation with the Mom It Forward Blogger Network.

Easy Blueberry Syrup

Ingredients:

3 1/2 to 4 cups Blueberries

2-3 tsp lemon juice

1 1/2 to 2 cups Domino Quick Dissolve Superfine Sugar (You can add more or less to taste, we just try to do less)

domino sugar flip top

 

 

Directions:

Bring blueberries and lemon juice to a full boil

Drop heat to simmer, cook for about 10 minutes

I like to run my syrup through my immersion blender or Magic Bullet to get it nice and smooth at this point.  You can also strain it through a cheesecloth. I’m lazy.

If you want a syrup with berries in it, add about a cup of fresh or frozen berries to the batch at this point.

Return berries to pan, adding the sugar to sweeten. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute.

Let cool.

Use within 1 week.

Serve over pancakes, waffles, or even ice cream for a sweet, fruity treat!

 

So why did I use the Domino Quick Dissolve Superfine Sugar?  Well, it’s super easy to use, and no mess.  With a flip top cap that pours easily, the kids can help with ease, or I can multitask without so much risk of making a mess.  The quick dissolve means I don’t have to worry that the syrup will be grainy from sugar not dissolving. Pop the lid close and voila! No mess. Bonus? I can also sweeten my coffee while I’m making syrup.  The sturdy hourglass-shaped canister is available in Domino® Pourable Light Brown Sugar, C&H® Golden Brown Sugar and Quick Dissolve Superfine Sugar (available by Domino® and C&H®).

I really like making syrups like this, because I can control exactly how much sugar is going into the kids, I’m giving them organic berries from our yard, which are full of antioxidants and other great vitamins for their bodies, and it’s so easy to make.  Having an easy to use canister for my sugar just takes one step away from what I’m doing and makes my life easier.

  • I do make my own syrup! My two favorites are blackberry and apricot. I don’t make blackberry much these days because I no longer live near giant patches of wild plants, but I almost always have a jar or two of homemade apricot syrup on hand.

  • I’ve never made syrup before and I had no idea it was this easy to make. I’ve never seen Domino sugar here on the west coast though but it was the only one I used when I lived in NYC.

  • I like making dessert and pancake syrups like this, otherwise I am just a real maple syrup girl.

  • My favorite kind is maple, but occasionally I’ll add some blueberry to that too. I wish I had blueberry bushes like you do!
