Easy blueberry sauce

I have a link to this in the recipe section, but thought I would give a step by step on making the sauce you see so often on here.

You can use any blueberries you want, but I happen to prefer Wyman’s because they are sweeter than other blueberries and they are the tiny wild ones, which gives you more blueberries in the sauce and makes it more cohesive, so to speak.

This is the big bag, too πŸ˜€

I weigh out 140 grams, which is one serving:

Okay, 1 gram over.Β  This is 80 calories of blueberries (another reason to like the little wild ones).

I set this on a little more than medium on the stove while I am cooking whatever these are going to go on.

In a small bowl, mix 1 teaspoon of cornstarch with 1 tablespoon of cold water:

When the blueberry mixture bubbles and has a nice amount of juice in the pot, dump in the cornstarch mixture, turn off the heat (if electric) and stir.

Stir as the sauce comes back to a simmer with the residual heat. It will thicken immediately.Β  Remove from heat and serve on waffles:

Or pancakes:

Or parfait-style Oats in a Jar

You can also put some granola on top for a quick cobbler-type dessert.

With the cornstarch, the topping is 90 calories.Β  You can add sweetener if you wish, but that’s why I like the wild blueberries because you don’t need it.Β  Honey would be nice for this, and also a touch of lemon juice.

This could also be done in the microwave.Β  I just don’t like to because it annoys me to start and stop the microwave and to keep having to check on it.Β  With the sauce pan, it’s easy to monitor.Β  That’s just me.Β  This takes about 5 minutes to make, so I do it fresh each time.

    Hi Lori, Rachel asked if you could use fresh. I just made a big batch with fresh. It works, they don’t make as much ‘juice’ as you show with the frozen in your pic. Also don’t believe they are as sweet as the frozen. Also, I am guessing I cooked for a little too long, as some of them were kind of mashy. Still VERY tasty though.

    That’s a lot simpler than I figured! I usually don’t make anything to need these over it though πŸ™ Usually just add them to my smoothie.

    P.S: my race goal post is up now

    After I lost my weight and stopped OD’ing on sugar, I couldn’t eat syrup. Too sweet. Love fresh fruit on pancakes instead!

    Due to my inability to control waffles/pancakes/french toast, I would use this sauce over yogurt with the granola topping. I imagine it would taste pretty good that way, too. πŸ˜€
    Thanks so much for posting this, Lori.

    Thank you for this! For some reason cornstarch scares me, I’ve had a few failed gravies with it. Maybe I’ll suck it up and try it with the sauce πŸ™‚

      The key is to use cold water with the cornstarch before adding it to the pot and stir quickly over low heat.

      And for gravy I always use Wondra Flour. Mistake free!

    Thanks for posting the recipe and directions – I had no idea it was that simple, as your blueberry topping always looks so gourmet (and therefore in my mind, hard to make). I’m thinking that this would be an awesome mix-in with Greek yogurt (after it’s cooled, of course).

    I just had to tell you that I bought a 3lb bag of Wyman’s today at BJ’s! Now I just have to figure out a day that I can splurge on waffles. I can’t wait to try out your recipe πŸ™‚

    OMG Laurie! This is just the weirdest thing that you posted the Blueberry sauce recipe. I made pancakes this weekend and all I kept thinking about was your sauce but I couldnt find the recipe on your site so I had to settle for syrup. Do you have a tracking devise on your blog that tells you what Im looking for??? lol πŸ™‚ Talk about Deja Vu! πŸ™‚ Im seriously starting to believe in the law of attraction.
