Healthy Organic Blueberry Syrup Recipe
- 5 cups organic blueberries
- washed -1 cup water
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 organic lemon, whole, washed
- Using a sharp paring knife, peel three or four strips of lemon peel from the lemon. Skin should be about 1/2 inch wide and not have too much of the bitter pith or white part on it.
- Then juice the lemon, and set both zest and juice aside.
- Place blueberries and water in a medium pot. Don’t worry about stems or leaves; they will be strained out later. Using a potato masher, crush the berries.
- Over medium-high heat, bring the berries and water to a boil, then lower the temperature to medium-low.
- Simmer berries for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. They will darken considerably.
- Remove pot from heat and ladle berries into a fine sieve set over a heat-proof bowl or measuring cup. Using the back of a smaller ladle, press on the berry solids to extract as much juice as possible. Discard solids.
- Return the blueberry juices to the pot, then add the lemon peel (not juice yet) and the sugar. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 10 minutes until the mixture thickens slightly.
- Add 2 tablespoons lemon juice and stir to combine. Boil another minute or two. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Remove lemon zest.
- Using a funnel, pour syrup into clean jars. Top with lid and store in the refrigerator for up to three months, or the freezer for up to nine.
