Blueberry Simple Syrup


This blueberry syrup is a flavored simple syrup that is very versatile and goes with so many things. I especially like to put it on top of French toast or in pancake or waffle batter. It's also very yummy in cornbread or biscuit batter. This can be made in advance and stored in a glass jar in the refrigerator.

1 1/2 cups


  • 1 cup blueberries

  • 1 cup warm water

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice


  1. Mix blueberries, water, and sugar together using a whisk in a small saucepan over low heat until sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Increase heat to medium and bring a gentle boil, stirring often, until syrup is thickened, about 15 minutes.

  2. Whisk lemon juice into syrup; serve immediately or cool.


This recipe works nicely with other berries as well, such as strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries. If using raspberries and blackberries, the seeds can be strained out for a smoother syrup.

To make a thicker syrup that you can use on top of pancakes, stir in a mixture of 1 tablespoon cornstarch and 1/2 tablespoon water into the syrup just before bringing it to a boil.
