Homemade Blackberry Syrup!

A few weeks ago the kids and I went to the blackberry patch to pick a ton of blackberries. I wanted to make syrup! 

Look at all those yummy berries! 

First I cooked them with some sugar and mushed as many of the berries as I could. Then they went into the blender in batches. 

This was the messy part since it was hot and the blender is fast. It was a yummy sticky mess! 

After blending I still pressed them through my fine strainer to get out most of the pulp and seeds. 

I ended up with two and half bottles. It tastes fantastic! I gave these two bottles to Michael's co-workers. It's so thick that you have to run it under hot water to loosen it up enough to use. It's worth it though. Click here for the recipe I used!
