Blueberry Maple Syrup

5 stars based on 4 votes

Delicious over regular pancakesblueberry buttermilk pancakes or waffles, this blueberry maple syrup is just bursting with intense blueberry flavor.


To make it, simply combine the maple syrup, lemon juice and 2/3 of the blueberries in a medium saucepan. Boil the mixture for about ten minutes, then set aside to cool a bit. When the syrup is lukewarm, stir in the remaining blueberries.


That’s all there is to it. Enjoy!

    I made this it was great but I used frozen blueberries and it was watery. What can I do to make the sauce thicker.

    • Hi Denise, You can mix a little cornstarch with water and add it to the syrup – bring it to a boil and it should thicken right up.

    I make this with wild blueberries and it is delicious. The lemon is the perfect flavor addition.

  • Jen, do you think this would work with frozen blueberries so I can do this year around?
