Recipe type: Sauce
Cuisine: American
Serves: 6 to 8 servings
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen (unthawed) blueberries
  • ¼ cup maple syrup or liquid sweetener of choice
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • 1 teaspoon non-GMO cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Place the blueberries, sweetener, and salt in a small saucepan and stir to combine. Bring the mixture to a boil, while whisking. The blueberries will begin to release their juices. Reduce the heat to a simmer, and allow the mixture to cook for 5 minutes, checking in to give it a stir every minute. Some of the blueberries will pop as they cook, releasing more juices.
  2. In a small dish, whisk the water and cornstarch until dissolved. Whisk the mixture into the blueberry sauce. Bring the sauce back to a low boil, and allow it to boil for 2 minutes, while whisking. It should thicken up nicely.
  3. Remove from the heat and whisk in the lemon juice and vanilla extract. Let the sauce cool for a few minutes before serving.
