I was hoping to make bread this past weekend but time got away from me. My daughter asked me to go to lunch and a movie so I was all over that! We saw The Adjustment Bureau. I’m a big Matt Damon fan but I think I prefer him in action flicks. This movie was good entertainment and I will probably rent it when it comes out on DVD.
Anyway – back to the blueberries. I needed to use the blueberries before they got beyond-fresh. I opted for a quick and super easy Blueberry Sauce. I’m here to tell you that this sauce is pretty incredible. I got the recipe from Tasty Kitchen and only made one minor modification.
You can use fresh or frozen blueberries.
I am fascinated with blueberries. They are such a lovely fruit.
Wash the fresh berries removing stems and other debris.
These don’t look real. They look like a painting.
The texture and color variations are a miracle of nature.
I am so ready for spring!
I set the bowl of blueberries in a window to photograph them in natural light.
Captain Cat is extremely nosy. Of course he has to check out whatever I’m doing.
I think he would lay right up on my laptop keyboard if I’d let him.
Captain is a full blooded Bengal cat. He is incredibly beautiiiiful and smart and soft. He is also a great big pain in the behind. I just love ’em. It’s the eyes, he has incredible eyes.
Soaking up the sunshine after he realized blueberries were not his thing. But that had to be his decision.
Not sure what all that had to do with blueberry sauce, but it might explain the cat hair.
I’ll just leave it at that. Get your lemon juice, vanilla, salt, cornstarch and sugar ready.
Put the blueberries in a medium size saucepan and add the lemon juice.
Measure and add the vanilla.
Stir in sugar and salt.
Bring it to a boil over medium heat.
While the blueberries are boiling, mash some of them with a fork. Leave some berries whole.
Now mix the cornstarch with a little cold water. Just a tablespoon or so will be enough. You want to be able to pour the cornstarch mixture over the berries. Stir until you reach the desired consistency.
Now pour that beautiful, creamy sauce over your pancakes!
This is a very nice change from syrup if you ask me!
Just think about the possibilities. You could put this on pancakes, french toast, waffles, ice cream, or …
Angle food cake or pound cake, oh my. Or you can just eat it right out of the pan!
Super easy and delicious blueberry sauce
2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup sugar (or less to taste)
1 dash salt
1 to 2 tablespoon cornstarch mixed with cold water
Rinse fresh blueberries removing stems and debris. Add all other ingredients except the cornstarch and cold water. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Once it boils, mash some of the blueberries with a fork. Be sure to leave some whole. Slowly stir in the cornstarch water mixture until it is as thick as you want. Serve immediately and refrigerate leftovers. Easy peasy.
