Blueberry Sauce

So what to do with this abundance of blueberries, especially since I made something red for the forth of July, a red pepper sauce, how about a blue sauce… A sauce made from blueberries that goes nicely with vanilla ice cream… hmmm…

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1/4 c. confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. each cinnamon & nutmeg
  • 2 tsp. cornstarch
  • 2/3 c. water
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 pt. (1 lb.) blueberries, washed & picked over
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • Lemon zest, grated

Place sugar, spices and salt in a heavy saucepan. Dissolve cornstarch in 1 tablespoon water and add to saucepan. Heat to boiling, reduce to simmer and stir to smooth. Add blueberries and cook over moderate heat until smooth and thick, 20 to 30 minutes. Taste and add more sugar if needed. Add lemon juice only to taste; you may not want to use all of it. Add zest to taste. Serve warm or cold.
