My grandmother use to pick some strawberries from her garden and make us some strawberry pancakes in the mornings so I thought I would give it a try this morning.

I was uncertain how she got the strawberry type syrup with the cook strawberries so I wing it this morning.
I look up how how to make the syrup online and was like I have to buy this and this to make so Ill cheat ... lmao

I went to the store in the syrup section and bought some strawberry syrup, strawberries, butter, and shake and go pancake mix.

I pour the whole bottle of syrup in a pot then wash, and slice the strawberries brought it to a boil then reduced the heat and of course I am southern added some butter to it.

Pour the pancakes til they was done throw them on plate and put a slab of butter on the pancake then spread smooth peanut butter on top then topped it with strawberries.

YUM

One thing my grandmother use to do that I havent figure how to do she would pour the pancake mix so it covers about the whole pan almost to the size of dinner plate. I would ruin it during the flip being so large.

I tried chocolate chip pancakes before and it was too sweet for me to enjoy what are things you like on your pancakes?

Most any fresh fruit or berry. I haven't tried fresh pears yet but I think they would be good too. I like the fresh fruits or berries or a combination simmered into a syrup to top them with. Peaches, strawberries, & blueberries are my 3 favorites. I want to try and make a refrigerator version of strawberry syrup by making a thin refrigerator jam. It might just work. That would preserve the fresh pick strawberry flavor better.

That strawberry syrup sounds good, both of you. But I'm from Northern NY. It has to be butter and real NY maple syrup for this gal.

I like that way too well I dont know if it was ever NY before but definitely Vermont's. I like the stawberries cook in the syrup to soften them up a bit but your methods sounds good just use a slotted spoon or mix both

No! No! No! Fresh blueberries that you fought off mosquitoes, deer flies, and briars to pick yourself in the woods and warm real northern Michigan maple syrup! Hot cocoa and a side of lean bacon; all eaten on the back porch table on a cool crisp Michigan morning at Grandma's cottage at the lake. That's breakfast!

SunnyKayak, I suspect your grandmother made a simple syrup from sugar and water and infused the strawberries in that. To get the most flavor from the berries you want to really dessicate them. Try slicing or crushing them with a potato masher and sprinkle some sugar on them to get the juices flowing. Sounds yummy.

I think you are right about the strawberry syrup.

Fresh strawberries would have been good with a bit of Cool Whip.

I'm in Georgia and peaches are delicious on pancakes. LOL--with a little Cool Whip.

I am more of a waffle person for some reason.
