My husband is a HUGE fan of pancakes...I think he could eat them ALMOST daily, but I'm nice and shake up his breakfast menu....that way he won't get tired of them. He likes his with the plain ol' maple syrup...nothing special, nothing fancy....BUT because I get bored of serving pancakes the SAME way, I make different syrups, sauces, toppings etc.... so its like eating an entirely different thing every time.
This Orange Blueberry Syrup was a fun (yes food can be fun) and yummy way to shake the pancake thing up a bit and everyone loved it!
Orange Blueberry Syrup
2 c. frozen blueberries
1/4 c. water
1 c. orange juice (already made)
1 1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. cold water
4 T. cornstarch
In a saucepan, combine first 4 ingredient. Stir and bring to a boil. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and water to make a thickener. Gently stir small amounts of thickener into berry mixture....just a little at a time, stirring in between, and returning to a boil, so that you don't make your syrup too thick (add SOME thickening, return to boil, if you want it thicker add more and repeat process). You may or may not want ALL the thickening in your syrup. Simmer. Serve with your favorite pancakes, waffles, french toast etc..
