Berry Syrup

6 1/2 cups fresh or frozen fruit, such as blueberries, cherries, grapes, raspberries or strawberries


Wash, cap, and stem fresh fruit and crush in a saucepan. Heat to boiling and simmer until soft (5 to 10 minutes). Strain hot through a colander and drain until cool enough to handle. Strain the collected juice through a double layer of cheesecloth or jelly bag. Discard the dry pulp.


The yield of the pressed juice should be about 4 1/2 to 5 cups. Combine the juice with sugar in a large saucepan, bring to boil, and simmer 1 minute.


To make a syrup with whole fruit pieces, save 1 or 2 cups of the fresh or frozen fruit, combine these with the sugar, and simmer as in making regular syrup.


Remove from heat, skim off foam, and fill into clean hot half-pint or pint jars, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Adjust lids and process.


This recipe yields about 9 half-pints.
