Can I just say that I love berries, of any kind! Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries – they all are so delicious, but for some reason I do especially love blackberries. I also love that blackberries tend to hold up better than raspberries. I recently made a blackberry syrup and help remind me of just how much I love them.
This blackberry syrup would be excellent on just about any breakfast item – pancakes, waffles, crepes, etc. Ice cream or cake would also be tasty! I served this on top of croissant french toast along with some whipped cream and a few fresh raspberries. Berries do like to mingle with each other.
Oh, let me just say it was divine! I still think about how divine it was! If you love berries, then you must make this. Seriously, make it! I am thinking of making some again this weekend!
- 2 cups frozen blackberries or 1 pint fresh blackberries
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 Tbsp cornstarch
- In a sauce pan, combine the blackberries, sugar and water. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 5 minutes.
- Sprinkle in the cornstarch and stir to combine. Stir until cornstarch is combined and mixture is thick. I leave the berries whole but you can mash at this point is you don’t want big pieces. Makes 2 cups.
