Fresh Berries

Fresh Strawberry Syrup

1 c sugar
1 c water
1 1/2 c mashed fresh strawberries

In a saucepan, bring sugar and water to a boil.  Add strawberries and return to boil.  Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Serve over pancakes or waffles.

Recipe from

I visited Berry Patch Farms again with a couple of friends.  This time, I left triumphantly with a whole flat full of strawberries, and a few pints of raspberries.  I could have picked more, but you know, I did have to pay for them! 

From this: 

We now have one bottle of syrup, three pints of raspberry jam, at least six pints of strawberry jam plus more on the stove now, eight little packs for lunches, and several snacks on the go.  Yum!
