Recipe by Kathy Gunst.

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups fresh or frozen wild Maine blueberries

Preparation

Boil the water over high heat. Add the sugar, stir, and cook over high heat for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the liquid just begins to turn a pale golden color. Reduce to moderate heat, add the berries, and cook 10 minutes. Cool off the heat for 5 minutes. Place the berries and liquid in a strainer set over a wide heat-proof bowl and strain the berries through, pushing down to extract all the liquid. Let cool. The syrup can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or frozen in ice cubes trays or a plastic bag for up to 8 months.
