One of the things I love most about summer is the glorious fresh fruit that’s available. Juicy peaches, sweet blueberries, cold slices of watermelon at a backyard barbecue. I love it! I found some beautiful raspberries on sale last week, they were just $12.99 for a case of 6 (12 ounce) packages! Can you believe it? I hardly could. I bought three cases and made a bunch of jam. (Click here for a Raspberry Jam tutorial. Please note that I use frozen berries in the tutorial, but you can use fresh just the same).

Anyhow, it turns out that I had more berries than canning jars (and the thoughts of heading back to the store in 103 degree heat for additional jars, was just plain more than I could take. What is it about walking on black top that has been baking in the sun for weeks on end. It’s like some kind of furnace, am I right!) And so my family and I ate the rest of the berries on the top of our breakfast oatmeal. Some of us had them topped with vanilla yogurt (a bite of heaven) and then finally I made some Homemade Raspberry Syrup.

We poured it over the top of vanilla ice cream, oh my.

Homemade Raspberry Syrup for Pancakes

We ate it drizzled over  fluffy pancakes. Good glory, it was good. Just the right amount of tart and sweet. Hope you enjoy it! Let me show you how to make it happen.

3. Add 1 1/2 teaspoons water and 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice.

Stir it  together to combine. It will look kind of pasty.

4. Find yourself 12 ounces of beautiful raspberries.

Add them to the sauce pan and stir them gently, so the berries begin to be coated. The berries will begin to break down, which is just fine.

5. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium high heat, stirring frequently. Let it bubble and boil for 1 minute. It should thicken up into a nice syrup consistency for you.

6. Remove it from the heat and add 1 tablespoon butter, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and a dash of salt.

    1. Chris,
      I haven’t ever tried to can it. Not sure if it would hold up to safety regulations.
      Best of luck to you,
      ~Jamie

  1. Re canning: I’ve canned (hot water bath method) a version of this syrup with just lemon juice, water, sugar and berries from my bushes. It works fine. My syrup is strained through cheesecloth, though, so has none of the seeds of pulp. Tastes great!

  2. This is a fabulous fresh uncooked syrup from “Cooking Alaskan”. We’ve been making it for 30 years.

    Raspberry Hope Stir

    Equal parts fresh raspberries & granulated sugar

    Stir together until mixture liquefies. Store in a cool place (refrigerator or cellar) and continue to stir every day for 14 days. Strain if seedless syrup is desired.

    This delicious topping will store all winter without fermenting if stirred without fail as directed and stored in a cool place.

    If I strain it, I add vodka to the remaining seeds and pulp, let it sit for several days/weeks and strain again for a beautiful raspberry vodka.

    Serving suggestions:
    pancakes & waffles
    hot cereal
    ice cream
    shortcake
    beverages

  3. At Chalet Suisse restaurant in Aruba they serve Frambois Kisses — raspberry sauce over ice cream. Delicious. Thanks for your recipe.
