Homemade Raspberry Syrup

Time: 10 minutes
Yield: 1 1/2 cups
Recipe from Jamie Cooks It Up!

4 t cornstarch
1/2 C sugar
1 (12 ounce) package raspberries, fresh or frozen
1 1/2 t water
1 1/2 t lemon juice
1 T butter
1/2 t vanilla
dash salt

1. Grab a medium-sized sauce pan and add 4 teaspoons cornstarch to it. 
2. Add 1/2 cup sugar and stir the ingredients together. 
3. Add 1 1/2 teaspoons water and 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice. Stir it  together to combine. It will look kind of pasty. 
4. Find yourself 12 ounces of beautiful raspberries. Add them to the sauce pan and stir them gently, so the berries begin to be coated. The berries will begin to break down, which is just fine. 
5. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium high heat, stirring frequently. Let it bubble and boil for 1 minute. It should thicken up into a nice syrup consistency for you. 
6. Remove it from the heat and add 1 tablespoon butter, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and a dash of salt. 
Pour it, nice and warm over the top of some vanilla ice cream. Or drizzle it over a lovely stack of pancakes...any way you serve it, I do believe you will love it.
