In a sauce pan combine all ingredients. Bring to a soft boil. Once boiling reduce heat and simmer uncovered until all berries have popped. Continue to simmer until slightly reduced and it begins to thicken. (20-30 min)
Using a colander or food mill break up berries. I like larger berries so I do not used a food processor.
Place syrup in HOT jars if you plan to can it. Wipe rim of jar, place lid and secure hand tight. Process in a water bath for 20 min, adjust for altitude.
Allow jars to cool and store in cool dark place for up to a year.
