The other day my husband brought home a few pints of blueberries....said they were a good buy at the supermarket. Well....my daughter doesn't like them and either does my husband. I already had eaten almost 2 pints........didn't want to waste them so I made some sauce to go with a cheesecake that I had baked.

Now my husband and daughter pour that blueberry syrup over the cheesecake and it is almost gone...won't eat fresh but love the sauce.

My favourite is this sauce over cheese blintzes...yummmm, or even over some pound cake or ice cream.

Fresh Blueberry Sauce
By , About.com Guide

•2 cups fresh blueberries
•1/3 cup sugar
•1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
•1/4 teaspoon salt
•1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Wash and crush blueberries; add sugar, lemon juice and salt.

Mix well. In a small saucepan, bring blueberry mixture to a boil; boil 1 minute.

Add vanilla.......... Chill.

Serve over puddings, cake, or ice cream.
*****I added a pinch of cinnamon and a teaspoon of corn syrup, made it even more rich tasting.


  1. Sounds wonderful, I love blueberries, as do all my family. A bargain that tastes good is a double bonus.

  2. Oh, yeah, this sauce would be fabulous over cheese blintzes...and cheesecake! In fact, my stomach is growling just thinking about it!

  3. That looks yummy! Found you through Carolyn (Serendipity)'s blog :-)
