Blueberry Syrup

This morning for breakfast the kids requested waffles. We are out of the maple syrup that we normally use and won’t be able to order any from the co-op  until next month. So this is what I came up with. I am always putting something together by adding a little of this and that and then the children are saying ” Bet you can’t make this again”, sometimes they are right! So since I have alot of blueberries in the freezer that we picked off of our bushes last season, and since we usually put some on top of our waffles,  I decided to make some syrup out of them. I took approx. 4 cups of berries and put them in the blender with 1/2 cup of water and blended them up well. Then I put them into a sauce pan and added about 3/4 cup of organic cane juice sugar and brought it to a boil, then turned it down on low to simmer for a few minutes. Blueberries are high in pectin, which makes it get somewhat thick on its own. Be sure to stir while cooking as it foams up quite a bit. You can adjust the sugar more or less according to how sweet you want.

We order from 2 different bulk food co-op’s: www.azurestandard.com and from Country Life Natural Foods  www.clnf.org   The maple syrup comes from Country Life, or at least they have the best price on it for now. If you are interested in saving money on organic food and buying it in bulk I would suggest looking at these sites. These 2 companies are a blessing to us! We order all of our flour and sugar, wheat berries, beans and rice from Country Life. They do not carry any refrigerated or frozen items or fresh produce so we get those from Azure. For example organic apples, onions, carrots and potatoes. It is a savings from buying these things from the store.  I will post more later about storing these and stocking up the pantry!
