Blueberries and Pancakes are combined in this easy to make homemade Blueberry Pancake Syrup.
Fresh from the garden blueberries are the best. Really they are delicious!
This year we had a great blueberry year and my freezer is now stocked with blueberries for us to enjoy this fall and winter. And not only is my freezer well-stocked, we have also been enjoying them in all kinds of salads and desserts.
When I got back from vacation last week we had quite a few blueberries still coming from the garden. The advantage to planting several varieties is that blueberry season lasts for at least a month, sometimes longer.
Because I was trying to catch up on things last week I kept the meals pretty simple. One morning though I knew I wanted to incorporate some blueberries into the meal, but I still wanted to keep it quick and easy. I decided blueberry syrup over pancakes would be perfect.
Pancakes with fruit or fruit syrup are a summer favorite at our house, so when I realized that I had never shared homemade blueberry syrup with you, I knew I needed to fix that and share it while it was still blueberry season.
If you love blueberries and have never had blueberry pancake syrup this is a must try. It takes pancakes to a whole new level of deliciousness.
