Blackberry Syrup

This recipe is so easy! You can do this with any berry you have! My kids absolutely love it - and have asked to have it on top of everything they've eaten since I made it (anything from chicken to pasta salad) they've settled for having it on pancakes and toast. Blackberry Syrup
3 c. fresh blackberries
1/2 c. sugar
1/3 c. water
1. In heavy 3 quart saucepan, combine blackberries, sugar and water. Mix gently. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar dissolved.
2. Bring to boiling over medium high heat. Reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until fruit is soft.
3. While cooking 2 to 3 more minutes gently mash fruit against pan with wooden spoon.
4. Cool to lukewarm. Strain fruit mixture by pressing through a sieve to remove all the seeds.
5. Cover and refrigerate up to 2 weeks.
I doubled this recipe and ended up with 4 small jars of syrup. One to eat this week - and 3 to freeze!
What a fun way to use up fruit - it makes breakfast an extra special occasion!
