It's strawberry season - so hopefully I will be canning strawberry jam and other goodies.

Anyone can anything besides jam with strawberries?

I did up 4 pints of strawberry jam and 4.5 of strawberry syrup. It probably won't be enough syrup as hubby has been hitting it hard with ice cream.

How do you make your strawberry syrup?
I was just looking at a recipe for Maple Strawberry Smooch that I might try. It is strawberries, maple syrup, unsweetened apple juice, lemon juice, and pectin. Recommended uses: cake, frozen desserts, fruit salad, hot cereal

Oops. I never answered. These syrups recipes were for pancake syrups. We like them on ice cream.

Strawberry syrup

8 cups fruit
6 cups sugar
2 cups water
2 Tbsp lemon juice

You can strain out the chunks if you want, I take the hand mixer to it a bit. We like some chunks.

Put up 4.5 pints of blueberry syrup. Hubby needs to try it and tell me if he wants more.

Again you can strain if wanted. I use the mixer

Blueberry syrup

8 cups fruit
3 cups sugar
4 cups water
2 Tbsp lemon juice

I actually will probably cut out a cup of the water from the recipe next time to make it thicker.
