We first tried the recipe, from Nigella Lawson, after picking about 15 pounds of blueberries last summer. There's still one last bag in the freezer, and while most of it will go to into smooties, we're reserving a bit for this easy and delicious syrup. It's a wonderful little taste of summer on a cold winter morning.
As we said, it's just the two ingredients – four parts blueberries to one part maple syrup. You heat them in a sauce pan until the berries begin to break down and form a thick syrup. And, that's it!
For a little PB&J twist, try spreading peanut butter on your pancakes and then topping them with the blueberry syrup. It might sound a little strange, but it can be a little addictive.
