Blueberry Sauce

Hi Everybody!

I hope all’s going well for you & yours. My family & I are doing well. I can’t believe how fast this year is going by! Before we know it, it’ll be Thanksgiving already! Boy, am I looking forward to that!! But, more on that later!

Lately I’ve really been crazy about blueberries. Besides being yummy, they’re really good for you! They’re a great source of vitamin C, vitamin K, manganese, copper and even fiber. They are one of the highest antioxidant foods, which means it helps fight free radicals that make us get wrinkles and age spots. (I, for one, am very happy about that attribute of blueberries!)

Today, I’m sharing a recipe for Blueberry Sauce that I came up with recently. I love it on biscuits with my breakfast. You can also use it on ice cream and yogurt. (Or whatever your heart desires.)

In it, I use date sugar but if you’d rather, you can use cane sugar. I haven’t tried it that way but I’m sure it’ll still be delicious. You can also blend it using a stick blender if you prefer a smoother texture. (I like it the way I like my mashed potatoes…a little lumpy. LOL)

I hope you like it as much as I do!

Happy Cooking!

Adding the water to my blueberries.

Now, I’m putting in the date sugar…

…and the lime juice.

Beginning to cook the blueberries.

It helps the process if you mash the berries as they’re cooking.

After the sauce is simmered a while, it gets pretty thick.

It’s a pretty dark purple color.

Got it on my biscuit with breakfast…so yummy!!!

Blueberry Sauce

1 (heaping) cup Fresh Blueberries

1/3-2/3 Cup Water (depending on how thick you want it)

1/4 Cup Date Sugar*

1/2 tsp Lime (or lemon) juice

  1. Put 1 heaping cup fresh blueberries in a saucepan.
  2. Add 1/3 cup water and lime or lemon juice. You can add more water at any time if necessary.
  3. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer, stirring and mashing the berries occasionally.
  4. When the sauce is the desired thickness, remove from the heat and allow it to cool.
  5. Put the sauce on biscuits, ice cream, yogurt or whatever you’d like. Enjoy!!
