Blueberry Sauce

It's blueberry season!  And I love blueberries.  We have some bushes in the backyard and I eat the berries as fast as they ripen.  That's if I can pick them before the chipmunks, squirrels and birds get to them!  They are so good.  Sweet and juicy and warm from the sun.  I can't blame the critters for wanting to eat them! 

Since we never get enough berries to make anything, we bought some at the market.  They're pretty good although not nearly as good as our own backyard berries! But they will make a delicious sauce for topping GF pancakes. (I use a store bought GF pancake mix.)
This sauce is really quick and easy and works just as well with frozen berries as it does with fresh.  Make a double batch so you will have leftovers for topping vanilla ice cream!

Warm Blueberry Sauce
  • 1 pint blueberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1/3 cup sugar or equivalent sweetener of your choice
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
Combine berries and sugar in a pot.  Combine the water and cornstarch and stir until cornstarch is completely dissolved, add to the pot.  Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally.  Simmer for about 10 minutes, until berries are soft and the sauce thickens.  Stir gently so you don't smoosh the berries.  Serve warm on pancakes, waffles or ice cream.
