Paulie picked 2 cups of wild Blackberries, I created this beautiful syrup:
- 2 cups Blackberries, rinsed
- 3/4 cup sugar
- Juice of one Orange
- Juice of one Lemon
In a small sauce pan, place blackberries, sugar, orange and lemon juice and cook on medium heat stirring constantly for 6 minutes. Don't walk away, this will boil over! After 6 minutes of boiling, remove from heat and allow to cool. Once cooled, puree using an immersion blender then press through a fine mesh strainer (the kind you'd use to dust powdered sugar over a fancy desert) to remove the seeds. I gave the seeds to the chickens as a fun summer treat. Keep refrigerated for up to 2 weeks, if it last that long. This photo is of the syrup over vanilla bean ice cream. Enjoy!
