This simple blueberry sauce recipe can be made in less than 10 minutes, using fresh blueberries. Serve it with your favorite dessert or try it on a savory dish, like pork sandwiches. Just make sure you’ve made a lot, because it goes fast.
Out of all the berries, blueberries have to be my favorite. There are just so many delicious things that you can do with them. And since blueberries are at they’re peak right now I’ve been going blueberry crazy! I’ve had to have purchased over 10 pounds so far, I froze several pounds, so that we can have them throughout the year, but I’ve also used quite a bit.
Surprisingly I could use another run to the farmers market. Between all of the requests for blueberry muffins and my blueberry sauce there’s not much left.
This time instead of freezing them, I plan on making a bunch of blueberry sauce and preserving it. I didn’t realize how much my family liked the blueberry sauce. They were literally putting it on everything; pancakes, ice cream, toast, peanut butter sandwiches, I even caught my son using it to dip a banana in, which was delicious by the way. If they eat much more they may turn into a blueberry like Willy Wonka’s, Violet Beauguard.
