Blackberry Syrup Recipe | Only 4 Ingredients
Ever since I started dating my husband 5 years ago, this blackberry syrup always seemed to be brought up because it was one of his all time favorite things ever–and it was the same with all of his 7 siblings! They just love this stuff! So, after officially joining the Brennan clan, I needed to somehow get my hands on this famous recipe his Mom had. Luckily, she was more then happy to share and I’m going to be sharing with you this exact same recipe today!
When she first wrote it out for me, I thought “That’s it?!” because it was only 4 ingredients, but after making it a few times and my husband eating a ridiculous amounts of pancakes smothered in the stuff, I knew it was right on. So, if you can get your hands on some plain jarred blackberries, then this would be the stuff to make!
Main Ingredients Needed
With only 4 ingredients, this syrup comes together in a cinch! Here is what you’ll need:
- Jarred blackberries- gotta have blackberries to make blackberry jam!
- Granulated sugar– sweetens the berries.
- Cornstarch + water– to thicken syrup.
How To Make Blackberry Syrup | Directions
Step 1: Combine + Cook
In medium saucepan, stir sugar and cornstarch together with a whisk. Slowly stir in water until smooth. Stir in blackberries, water and all. Place pot on heat and bring to boil stirring frequently. Once sauce thickens, it’s done!
Of course you can add more cornstarch for a thicker syrup or add more water for a thinner syrup, depending on your preference!
Storing Blackberry Syrup
You can use blackberry syrup fresh, freeze it or can it. It will be store well in the fridge for a few weeks if stored in an airtight container.
