we went pickin again. our oldest favorite fruit is blueberries so naturally when the opportunity presented itself to pick again we jumped on that bandwagon. i froze the majority of these. they are great for blueberry pancakes and blueberry syrup, smoothies, or just eating the frozen berries as is. lately we have had a lot of pancakes and the syrup that i have been making is a simple syrup with fruit added. delicious and much better for you than the alternative. while i am flipping the pancakes i put 3/4 cup water and 1/2cup sugar on the stove in a saucepan. reduce the mixture. once it thickens add fresh fruit (i add quite a bit of fruit) and let the mixture lightly roll boil for about 3 minutes. stir it though, you don't want it to stick. it is delicious and adds a whole new level to pancakes or ice cream for that matter.
