You may not have realized this yet but I’m really incredibly lazy. Yup that’s right LA-ZY! I take cooking shortcuts, I opt for the easy recipes, I go for the fast stuff that LOOKS like I’m an incredibly hard working chef slaving away in the kitchen. In reality I’m a totally lazy mom with absolutely no time to cook. Here is one of the best and easiest recipes ever. It makes a wonderful syrup that’s great for pancakes, snow cones, ice cream sundays and cocktails for mommy. The addition of thyme gives it an interesting flavor that makes it a bit more complex without taking away from its yummy sweet fruity taste. This fancy sounding syrup has 3 ingredients, takes 10 minutes to make and will keep for a couple of weeks in the fridge. If you want to make a bigger batch and can it…well you’re a mom with way more time on her hands than me.
4-5 sprigs fresh thyme
1 small basket fresh blackberries
1 cup apple juice
Step 1: Toss all ingredients in a heavy sauce pan
Step 3: Use the back of a spoon to smoosh any remaining berries. Strain ingredients into a heat proof jar like pyrex or a canning jar. Refrigerate.
