Blueberry Orange Honey Syrup

When blueberries are in season, stock up on these super food beauties, good for just about everything you have — skin, body, and health.  You can make fresh blueberry recipes all summer, but you can also freeze your berries to have fresh flavor all year.  This syrup has no refined sugars. It relies on ripe berries, honey, and the natural sweetness of the orange, so it’s important to use good fruit.   This Blueberry Orange Honey Syrup is splendid on French Toast, yogurt, oatmeal, cereal, as a dip for fruit, and even as an add-in flavor booster for a morning smoothie.

    Our favorite way to use this syrup is over unsweetened Greek Yogurt for breakfast or dessert, and over cooked steel cut oats, in place of maple syrup.
