Blueberry Milk

(originally made 8/2011)

Jake and I discovered blueberry milk last summer on one of our weekly farm trips.   It's packaged in glass bottles from a local dairy and it's $4.50 a quart.    Needless to say, it's only an occasional treat at that price.   I was happy to see a blog featured on FoodGawker that had made it from scratch and couldn't wait to give it a try.    So good, and so much more cost effective!      I look forward to trying it with other berries  :)

                              Blueberry Milk


  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
     1/2            C.  fresh blueberries (or berries of your choice)
  3                 T.  sugar -- depending on how sweet you like (3 to 4)
     1/2            C.  water
  1                 C.  milk

In a small saucepan, bring water, sugar, and blueberries to a boil over medium heat.  Boil continuously for 5 minutes, then remove from heat.

Strain mixture into a bowl or measuring cup through a fine-mesh sieve, pushing the berries to release all liquid.  (Reserve berries for baking recipes, or mixing into plain yogurt, smoothies, etc!)

Refrigerate syrup until cold (or cool slightly, then remove glasses from freezer).  Set out 3 small glasses on counter, and place 2 T syrup in the bottom of each glass.  Add 1/2 C. cold milk to each, stir, and enjoy!
