Homemade Pancake Syrup and Pancake Mix

 Baskets by Rose
Pancake Syrup
12 cups berries (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, etc)  Use one kind or mix them up.
5 to 7 cups sugar
Wash all fruit, place in a pan, mash well (potato masher works well).
On low heat start to cook down, when the juices start to flow start adding the sugar. After you add the 5 cups check to see how sweet it is, if you use the full 7 cups it will also be a little more thicker.
Cook to it starts to boil, and the sugar dissolves.
Remove from heat and let cool.
Place in a blender, or run though a food mill.  A food mill will leave you with juice, the blender will give you some pieces of fruit.  I like a little fruit in mine, but this is up to you.
While the syrup is cooling down, get your jars and lids ready.
Return the blended juice to your pot and heat to boiling again.
Fill each jar to about a 1/2" from the top.
Water bath 1/2 pints 10 minutes, pints 15 minutes.  Remove from canner, and listen to your lids pop.
There are great web site with basic canning directions if this is new to you.

Pancake Mix

12 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
4 cups powder milk
2 tablespoons salt
3/4 cup baking powder
Mix together, and place in a tightly sealed container.

To make pancakes use
1 1/2 cups of the above mix
1 egg beaten
1 cup water
2 tablespoon salad oil

Mix well, cook on a hot grill, serve hot with butter, and your homemade syrup.
