Semi-Homemade Blueberry Syrup

BlueberryI was so excited to find fresh blueberries majorly on sale last week at the store; I've been doing something a little different with them every day this week.  This morning the blueberry dish de jour was blueberry syrup.

I found a recipe, but it was too complicated for early Saturday morning so I decided to modify.  I put about a half a pint of blueberries in a small skillet with just enough water to cover them, and sprinkled about 3 heaping teaspoons of sugar over the stop.  Then I brought them to a boil, stirring every so often to dissolve the sugar.  I let them boil for, oh, 5 or 10 minutes--until the water surrounding the berries was nice and dark and thick. 

At this point the recipe suggested pushing the berries through a sieve to get rid of the skins and seeds, but since blueberries aren't super seedy and the skins are actually pretty good, I figured, why bother?  Instead I poured the blueberry mixture into a bowl, mashed it up well, added an equal portion of regular syrup from the fridge (that's the semi-homemade part), gave it all a stir, and was ready for breakfast.
