Ingredients
  • 4 cups blueberries
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 lemon
Instructions
  1. Using a paring knife or vegetable peeler, peel five 1-inch strips of zest from the lemon then juice the lemon reserving 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. Set aside.
  2. Extract the blueberry juice by combining blueberries and water in a saucepan over low heat. Gently mash the blueberries with a potato masher and simmer over low heat for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. 

  3. Strain the juice into a heatproof bowl, pressing hard on the solids. Discard the solids.

  4. Return the blueberry juice to the saucepan. Add the lemon zest and honey. Mix to combine.

  5. Bring the saucepan to a boil over medium-high heat until the mixture thickens enough to coat the back of your spoon or registers 225°F on a candy thermometer, about 10 minutes

  6. Add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. Continue stirring and boil over medium-high heat for 1 minute. 

  7. Remove from heat, discard lemon zest, and allow the blueberry syrup to cool. 

  8. Pour into just-cleaned bottles. Cover and refrigerate. Use within 2 weeks.
