How to Make Blueberry Sauce

There are many ways in which blueberries can be used. They make a great snack when just eaten on their own or they can be made into a sauce or topping to serve with other foods, such as cheesecake, ice cream, yogurt, pancakes and waffles.


Blueberry Sauce

Carefully pick through fresh blueberries and discard any that are moldy, crushed, soft or shriveled. If there are any stems still remaining on the berries, remove them and discard. Check through enough berries to produce 2 1/2 cups of cleaned blueberries.

Place the blueberries in a strainer and gently swish in cold water. Allow excess moisture to drain off.

Mix the ingredients below together in a saucepan and stir until blended. Then place the blueberries in the saucepan.

  • 1 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1/8 cup water

Cook the blueberries over medium heat until mixture has thickened and is translucent. Stir the berries often while cooking. As the sauce thickens, add 1/8 to 1/4 cup of sugar. Add to desired sweetness.

The topping can be served warm or cool, depending on what you are using it for. It can be used as a topping on cheesecake, ice cream, pancakes, and many other foods.

This topping can also be used in recipes that call for a can of blueberries. Allow the topping to cool before adding it to other ingredients.
