How to Make Blueberry Syrup

Once you know how easy and versatile Blueberry Syrup is, you’ll be making it all of the time. Not only does it make a fantastic Blueberry Lime Spritzer but it’s also delicious on our fluffy American Buttermilk Pancakes for a special Pancake Day. Even the pulp gets used in our Blueberry Baked Oatmeal.  In pretty Kilner bottles, this syrup makes a lovely (and inexpensive) homemade gift.
