    I would totally crush this syrup. Nothing better than homemade. I might include a pinch of chili powder for myself, just to have a touch of heat. So delicious.

    Blueberries and blackberries are my 2 favorite berries! This syrup has perfect consistency and nice color. I think it is so good to pour on almost everything breakfast -related.
