Seriously, this recipe is by someone who calls themselves "Eradicator." If that isn't a ringing endorsement, I don't know what is.
1 c water
1 c white sugar
1 c fresh lilac blossoms, tightly packed
1-2 blueberries, for extra color (optional)
Rinse the lilac blossoms well under cold, running water. Carefully remove stems and leaves, you want only the blossoms.

Remove from the heat and carefully strain into a large, heatproof liquid measuring cup. Cover loosely with parchment or a dish towel and allow to cool.
Makes about 1 cup of syrup.
