Each recipe for the three berries is slightly different from each other, but only slightly.  I love that they are only four ingredients each!  No icky preservatives or chemicals to be found in these delightful syrups.  They’re perfect for pouring over pancakes, French toast, or waffles!  These berry syrups are also perfect for drizzling over oatmeal, yogurt, or ice cream.  Come to think of it, these syrups would be delicious stirred into milk or hot chocolate!

What we’re essentially doing is making simple syrup and infusing it with the berry flavor.  If you have simple syrup, you can substitute the water and sugar for simple syrup.  Use about the amount of water called for the substitution.

Wash berries and allow them to dry.

The other berries require an extra step.  While on the burner, crush the blackberries or strawberries with a potato masher to release all the juices.

The fruit remains can be discarded or used in a smoothie or bread if you don’t mind the extra sugar.  If the syrup is still too thick to your liking, drizzle in a bit of simple syrup or water 1 Tablespoon at a time until it is a good consistency.  If the syrup is too thin, continue to simmer it for up to 5 additional minutes.
