Very Simple Raspberry Syrup. All natural.
Use it as syrup for pancakes or mix with sour cream and make a delicious creamy and fruity sauce for macaroni.
This is also an excellent cough syrup and you may warm it up gently.
Raspberries, and berries in general, are a great source of vitamins, minerals and enzymes. They also have antibacterial properties.
Not 4 people allergic to berries. Obviously :)
Once you try this, you will never use store bought syrup again

- 1 or 2 pt
- raspberries, or any berries
- 1 1/2
- glass of sugar
1Wash berries thoroughly and put a layer on a bottom of a glass jar, pour enough sugar to cover berries, put another layer of berries and cover with sugar. Repeat until jar is full. Glass jars are best for keeping syrups.
2Cover with a triple layer of cheese cloth and leave outside until juice is formed. Once the juice comes up and all the sugar is melted (turned into syrup) you may use it for any sweet dish you like.
3My grandma used to make me a cold berry soup in the summer, or mix the berries with the syrup with sour cream and put it on pasta. It may seem weird but don't knock it till you try it. Children especially love this dish.
You may warm it up gently on a table spoon and give it to a child with a cold, it will warm up and soothe their throat. Do not make it hot just slightly warm it up. As I said it also has nutritional and "nourishing" properties. Great for kids who hate over the counter cough syrups :)
