Blueberry Maple Syrup Recipe

I grew up in Florida, where everyone knows the name: International House of Pancakes. It’s a typical American diner. You walk in and it’s always full. People’s plates are stacked high with pancakes, grits, steak and eggs. The waiters are always these characters – tattoos, mullets – they’re running around refilling our bottomless coffee. There’s nothing good for you on the menu, but that’s not what they’re about. What I always loved the most, were the bottles of flavoured syrups, lined up in a row on every table. Choosing your favourite was the highlight of the whole experience – though I would be scared now to ask what’s actually in them. So, here’s my 90’s throwback – a blueberry maple syrup that begs to be poured over pancakes, waffles or crepes. It’s bursting with flavour and has tons of character… but, perhaps more in our style!
