Homemade Blueberry Sauce comes together in just a few minutes. Try a spoonful with your morning yogurt or spooned over a stack of fresh, hot pancakes for a delicious treat!
It’s not quite spring here in Ohio, but this weekend’s ample sunshine could have definitely fooled you into thinking we were well on our way to blooming tulips and bike rides. However, one step outside, made you quickly realize that the air is still pretty darn cold, but all the sunshine had me craving spring flavors and luckily our fridge was stocked.
As I’ve mentioned before, we subscribe to the grocery delivery service, Door to Door Organics, and earlier this week, I accidentally ordered far too many half-pint containers of blueberries. I blame it on drowsily adjusting my order at 2 o’clock in the morning while we were up with our sick little babe.
I thought about freezing the blueberries for smoothies or snacking, but realized I already had several frozen bags in the freezer. Since I had no plans of eating blueberries with every meal, I decided to whip up a batch of homemade blueberry sauce for our Sunday morning pancakes. And since I doubled the batch – see I told ya, I ordered way too many – we have plenty leftover.
Homemade blueberry sauce comes together on the stovetop in less than ten minutes with just a few staple ingredients: fresh or frozen blueberries, water, sugar, lemon juice and cornstarch. And it’s absolutely delicious spooned over just about anything from pancakes and waffles to ice cream and cheesecake. We also love stirring a spoonful into vanilla, Greek-style yogurt with a sprinkle of granola for fun and tasty afternoon snack.
Whether you’re serving this sauce up with breakfast, dessert or a midday snack, it’s sure to please the blueberry lover in your life and get you in the mood for spring!
