I skipped the first 4 steps. I have a steamer juicer and had already juiced off the berries. My son went nuts over the syrup and ate 4 pancakes for supper (we had to had pancakes since we had syrup). Its a great simple recipe and I am making nanking cherry syrup today and chokecherry in a few days. Thanks a bunch

I used Blueberries and was very pleased. I canned several jars for the winter. My young son can never get enough Blueberry anything so the syrup is a real pleaser!
