  • This is absolutely amazing stuff. Served it with the challah French toast (without the honey). I keep waiting for a non-perfect recipe from Jenn and haven’t found one yet!

  • Lovely blend of flavours, went perfectly with the banana pancake recipe from this website, made a gorgeous and easy Easter long weekend breakfast

  • Hi Jenn – The Maple Blueberry Syrup sounds like exactly what I need to use the abundance of Jersey blues in the refrigerator. Can you think of a reason that I could not can that syrup in a boiling water bath? Because maple syrup seems to be so stable in the refrigerator, would I do better just to keep it there?
    Appreciate your help as always.

    BTW – Israeli Salad has become a summer staple – It’s so fresh and delicious – only change I made was to add a minced clove of garlic – seems to be a perfect addition. Thanks again.

    • Hi Peggy, I wish I could be more helpful, but unfortunately, I don’t have any expertise about canning and I’d be nervous to give you bad advice. I’m sorry!

  • I made the blueberry maple syrup to add another level of dimension to the buttermilk pancakes. It was easy and quick to make and definitely added something special to the pancakes. The blueberry is definitely the strongest flavor in the syrup and there are a lot of blueberry bites throughout. I made it again and cut back on the blueberries by about half and kept the other ingredients the same. The overall taste and effect was better for my family while still giving a nice blueberry flavor. I used any leftovers drizzled over oatmeal or toast. Next time I will try another fruit like strawberries or blackberries in place of blueberries.

  • Could you can this syrup recipe, how long would the shelf life be if you can. Wood it be like canning jam?

    • Hi Christine, I don’t have any experience with canning and I didn’t design this recipe with canning in mind, so to be safe, I wouldn’t recommend it. Sorry!

  • How long will this syrup keep?

    • I think it should keep well for 4 – 5 days in the fridge.

  • 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.

  • Wonderful syrup!

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