  • Choose ripe blackberries for the best flavor.
  • Look for organic, pure maple syrup for the best results.

  • Substitute blueberries for blackberries: Blueberries have a sweeter flavor than blackberries, so the syrup will have a more intense sweetness.
  • Substitute orange peel for lemon peel: Orange peel has a more subtle flavor than lemon peel, which will help balance out the sweetness of the syrup.

Strawberry & Vanilla Syrup Replace the blackberries with 4 ounces of strawberries and add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract to the syrup before heating.

What a wonderful topping for pancakes. I usually just use syrup or strawberries, but this will now become a standard at my house. Thanks for sharing, Mike. Made for What's on the Menu tag.
