Blueberry Sauce


I love blueberries and always have a bunch in my refrigerator. They are one of my favorite fruits, and I add them to everything, like my morning oatmeal, smoothies, pies, and even salads. With every bite, they pop so juicily and sweet they make everything taste better. I created this irresistible Blueberry Sauce, which I love poured over vanilla ice cream or drizzled on my pancakes.


Ingredients for Blueberry Sauce:


2 1/2 + 1/2 cups fresh blueberries

1/2 cup maple syrup

1/2 cup water

2 tablespoons cornstarch

2 teaspoons lemon juice

pinch of salt


Time-Saving Tip: Prepare the sauce a few days in advance and keep it refrigerated.


Let's see what we need.


We're ready to cook.



Combine 2 1/2 cups blueberries, syrup, and water in a medium-sized pot. Cook for a few minutes and bring to a light boil.


Once some of the berries have softened and start to break down add the lemon juice and cornstarch. You need to constantly stir to dissolve the cornstarch. A better way is to combine the lemon juice, cornstarch, and a tablespoon of water until well combined and then adding the mixture to the blueberries. Simmer a few minutes to thicken.


Stir in the remaining half cup of blueberries. Turn off the heat and let cool. Once cooled pour on top of ice cream or refrigerate to use later.


It's ready! Blueberry Sauce is so delicious I can eat it with a spoon and be totally happy!


Enjoy!
