How to Make Mixed Berry Simple Syrup

I love berry season! I always plan to make the most of it and try a new recipe highlighting berries, from old fashioned jams to pie fillings. This time I wanted to try the mixed berry simple syrup. We add store bought syrup to pretty much everything sweet during summer: refreshing lemonade and drinks, pancakes, waffles, ice cream so why not making homemade mixed berry syrup?!

The recipe is so simple, I can’t believe I haven’t tried to make syrup before! You just wash and prepare your selection of berries (cut strawberries in slices) add them to a large pan with sugar and 25 minutes later the syrup is ready! You can use fresh or frozen berries: raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, etc. I have used strawberries and raspberries for this recipe.
