Cheesy Fruity

ingredients

  • 4 sprigs lemon thyme
  • 7 ounces blueberries
  • 3 cups water
  • 3½ ounces sugar
  • Castello® Castello® Extra Mature Cheddar

preparation

1. Boil water, lemon thyme and blueberries for 10 minutes over medium heat without lid. Strain out the fruit, then add sugar.

2. Boil until you get big bubbles and the syrup has thickened. But be also aware, as this passes quickly and it may suddenly boil dry. So keep an eye on it.

3. Pour the syrup into a jar and serve with Castello Extra Matured Cheddar.

Tips & tricks

This syrup goes exceedingly well with pancakes, too. And it can, of course, be made using almost any type of berry. For instance, a blackcurrant syrup would be perfect served with a blue mold cheese.
