Today I’m excited to share my recipe for blueberry syrup! Since blueberries are in season, now is the perfect time to make it!
Making blueberry syrup is fairly simple, but there are a few factors that can complicate things. Using fresh or frozen blueberries is a big factor in how this recipe will turn out. Fresh blueberries contain less liquid and will take less time to reduce. Frozen blueberries contain more liquid and will take more time to reduce.
You can store this blueberry syrup in the fridge for up to two weeks.
I recommend making this recipe ahead of time for brunch or for a weekend camping trip. This recipe would also be great on vanilla ice cream!
Quick Recap for Making Perfect Blueberry Syrup + Tips
- Use fresh blueberries if possible. If you’re using frozen blueberries, keep in mind that the cook time will likely be longer to cook off more of the water.
- Use pure Grade A maple syrup NOT pancake syrup. There is a huge difference. Pancake syrup is usually made from corn syrup with added dyes to give it the dark color. Pure Maple Syrup is sap from maple trees that has been reduced down and purified for safe consumption. Grade A maple syrup is the most quality grade that you can buy.
Shop at Your Local Multi-Cultural Food Stores
You can find other fun ingredients for plant-based cooking such as mung beans, quality full-fat coconut milk, spices, and more! An added bonus of shopping at your local mutli-cultural food stores is that you familiarize yourself with a world of different fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices. I could go on and on about the benefits of supporting your local multi-cultural food stores. For now, take my advice and go check out your local Indian food stores, Asian food stores, and all your other local multi-cultural food stores. I promise it’s worth it.
Where to Buy Cheap Tapioca Starch
Tapioca starch can be found at most health food stores today. It usually runs around $4 or $5 for a 12 oz. to 16 oz. bag. However, I’ve been able to find tapioca starch for much cheaper.
It seems like I write about this in every other recipe post I create. It’s a tip that I will continue to freely give out for as long as I can imagine. Shop at your local multi-cultural food stores!!! Do it! Multi-cultural food stores are rich in diversity of ingredients and often have specific ingredients in bulk for waaaay better prices.
Before I moved, I shopped at two different multi-cultural food stores in my city and I was able to find all kinds of amazing deals. I bought 16 oz. bags of pure tapioca starch for just $1! I still buy large bags of cinnamon sticks for $3.
