Want to hang on a bit longer to the taste of sunshine bursting out of your Tree-Ripe fruit? We’re always looking for ways to preserve and get the most out of our fruit, and homemade fruit syrups are a favorite here! This is because they’re so simple to make, and ridiculously good. With only three main ingredients and less than an hour in the kitchen, you can start enjoying basic fruit syrup.
Our Michigan blueberries make a great starter for trying syrup. But why stop there?! Use our Georgia peaches instead of blueberries, or use a combination of both. Little tweaks and add-ons can be a gamechanger for the taste. Try a touch of lemon juice, vanilla or almond extract, fresh herbs, a pinch of cinnamon or ginger, or whatever else you want to make it your own. Use them on waffles, pancakes, ice cream, in iced tea and cocktails, and whatever else you think needs a little more sweetness in your life.
