Blackberry Simple Syrup

Blackberry Simple Syrup

 Since the blackberries I recently bought were much too tart to eat plain, I decided to use some of them to make this blackberry simple syrup. You can use this simple syrup to make Italian sodas, flavored lemonade, and adult beverages. It’s super simple to make and is great to have on hand.

How to Make Blackberry Simple Syrup

    Any chance you could make this with stevia or some other sweetener other than sugar?

    1. Espresso Jo,

      I’ve never tried using anything other than sugar so I’m not sure. If you give it a try, please let me know how it goes!
