How To Make Blueberry Sauce
Pour frozen blueberries, granulated sugar, hot water, and lemon juice in a saucepan.
Cook in a saucepan over medium heat for 10-12 minutes. Stir often, until the blueberries start to break down. If you choose to use fresh blueberries it will take less time for them to break down than if you were using frozen ones.
In a small bowl, mix together cold water and cornstarch.
Add the cornstarch/water mixture to the blueberries in the saucepan while stirring.
Stir and cook for 20-30 seconds, until thickened. Removed from the heat and stir in vanilla and salt.
This recipe makes about 1 1/2 cups of blueberry sauce. Spoon into a jar and store in the fridge. Use this sauce on top of everything!
