Here is a simple recipe that provides a sweet, cool treat and helps clear out some space when the turf war between fresh blueberries pick last month and applesauce from yesterday gets heated in the freezer.

the milk

Equipment:

2 quart saucepan
hand-held strainer
small mixing bowl

Ingredients:

1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1/4 cup sugar
2/3 cup water
2 cups milk

Combine blueberries, sugar, and water into the saucepan. Heat on medium-high until mixture boils.  Lower heat to medium-low, and simmer for 15-20 minutes.

When mixture thickens, remove from heat and strain into mixing bowl. Allow to cool, then refrigerate. Use ¼ cup of syrup with 1 cup of milk.
