Make sure your blueberries are de-stemmed, and of coursed washed.
Then put 4 cups of blueberries and 1 cup of water in a large pot over medium-high heat.
With a potato masher, mash your berries to release the juices.
Bring the berries to boil, then lower the temperature to medium low. Simmer the berries for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. They will darken
Remove pot from heat and ladle into a strainer to remove berry skins. This step is optional, depending on your preferences. If you want a really smooth syrup, strain all the pieces out. For a chunkier syrup, skip the straining all together.
Return the strained liquid back to your pot. Add sugar, lemon juice, and maple flavoring. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally, until syrup thickens to desired consistency
Remove from heat and add remaining blueberries, stirring gently to combine. Serve warm or cold. This recipe makes about 2-4 cups (depending on how much you strain out)
