Flavored Homemade Simple Syrup

I love making "homemade" version's
of items most people buy.
Syrup is one of the easiest
things to make, with little
ingredients and fabulous results!
Today I am sharing a "Simple Syrup"..
this type of syrup is used to 
make those old fashion
soda shop drinks.
You can also add this to your lemonade
 for added bonus flavor.

Flavored Simple Syrup
2 C. Berries~ frozen or fresh
1 C. Water
1 1/2 C. Sugar

Place water and sugar in a sauce 
pan over med heat. Stir and heat until
all the sugar is dissolved.
 Add in the berries.
(I love using blueberries, raspberries,
blackberries and cranberries)
Bring to a boil for 5 minutes.
Reduce heat to a simmer
and cook for another 8 minutes.
Pour into a fine mesh strainer
to press the juices through,
dis guard the seed's/pulp.
Let cool place in a container
and store in fridge.

Just add to your favorite
refreshing beverage.
*Try it on Ice Cream
Flavor your life,
Lark
