● 1 kg aronia berries
● 1 kg sugar
● 1-1/2 cups water
● 2 lemons
● juice of 1/2 lemon
Remove the berries from the stems and wash well.
Drain the berries well and then put them in a pot.
Next, squeeze the lemons and pour the lemon juice over the berries, stir and add the sugar.
Cover the pot and leave overnight.
In the morning, add the water and boil on low heat, removing any foam with a spoon.
Once the syrup starts to thicken add the juice of 1/2 lemon.
Once the syrup has reached the desired consistency, remove the pot from the heat and allow it to cool.
To see if the syrup has the desired consistency, put some syrup on a saucer and allow to cool.
Once it has cooled tilt the plate slightly and if it is not runny, the syrup is ready.
Store in sterilized jars.
