  • 1 ½ pounds blueberries (about 5 cups)
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 6 x 1-inch strips of lemon zest removed with a vegetable peeler
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice


In a pot, combine the blueberries with 1 cup of the water. Crush the berries with a potato masher and bring to a simmer. Simmer over low heat for 15 minutes.

Strain the juice into a heatproof measuring cup, pressing hard on the solids. Discard the solids. Rinse out the pot. Add the sugar, lemon zest and the remaining 3 cups of water and bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar.

Boil the syrup over moderate heat until it registers 225° on a candy thermometer, about 20 minutes. Add the blueberry juice and lemon juice and boil over high heat for 1 minute. Let the syrup cool, then discard the lemon zest.

Pour the syrup into just-cleaned bottles. Seal and refrigerate for up to 6 months.
