Recipe: Blueberry Syrup

Saturday I woke up feeling like a new person.  Since Dallan didn’t have to work over the weekend, he helped me out during Josephine’s nighttime feedings by changing her diapers, burping her and rocking her back to sleep.  Not only did he help me squeeze in 7 hours of sleep (3 here… 4 there…), but he woke up before me and whipped up breakfast for two.

For the second time this month, he concocted his own recipe from scratch and once again it was delicious.

Easy Blueberry Syrup Recipe


  • 1.5 cups of fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest (optional)



In a medium pan, smash fresh blueberries and add sugar, water, and lemon zest.  Mix ingredients together.  Next, bring ingredients to a boil then reduce heat (to medium-low) and simmer for an additional 5 minutes.

Makes 6-8 servings.


Note: You can also make blueberry syrup by simmering maple syrup and blueberries on medium heat for about 5 minutes.
