How to make Blackberry Simple Syrup:
Heat the sugar, water and blackberries in a medium saucepan, over medium-high heat.
Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
This was the fun part for me…no laughing, it was fun to watch! Do you see the pink berries? As they heat up, they turn dark…and then flip over! They would be pink again, then turn dark and flip over again. So watch the berries flip and simmer for 10 minutes, then remove from heat and smash with a potato or avocado masher.
Allow to cool for 10 minutes.
and pour through a strainer in to a bowl or measuring cup.
Press the berries through the strainer with a large spoon to squeeze as much liquid out as possible.
Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator until ready to use. This syrup should last for a couple of months, assuming you don’t use it all up before then.
