Michigan Blueberry Sauce

blueberrysauce2

It’s not secret that I LOVE Michigan Blueberries! I eat them by the handfuls all day long during blueberry season. Beyond Blueberry Muffins and Blueberry Buckle, what else can you do with them? Try this!

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 TBS fresh lemon juice
  • 2 TBS cornstarch, mixed with 2 TBS cold water
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the blueberries, 1/2 cup of water, sugar and lemon juice. Stir frequently, and bring to a low boil.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of cold water.
  3. Slowly stir the cornstarch into the blueberries, taking care not to crush the blueberries. Simmer until the homemade blueberry sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon, about 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and gently stir in vanilla.
  5. Serve over ice cream or on top of a cheesecake!
