We use this on our pancakes and waffles but it could be used for crepes or ice cream too. It's very versatile as we've used blueberries, strawberries, blackberries and raspberries all with great success. We don't like our syrup runny either and it has just enough thickness to keep it from running off our plate.

This is my favorite fruit syrup recipe. It is what I use every time I have waffles -- my kids still prefer the sugar based syrup. Thanks for sharing!
