Fresh blueberries, simmered to perfection, make a delectable sauce for sorbet, frozen yogurt or ready-made cheesecake. Served over frosty scoops of mango sorbet, it's a dramatic colour and taste treat.


Ingredients

  • 1 pint blueberries , or 340-g pkg frozen blueberries
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp butter

Instructions

  • In a small saucepan set over medium-high heat, combine blueberries, sugar and lemon juice. Stir often until berries soften and release some juice, about 2 minutes.

Serve right away or cover and refrigerate up to 3 days. Serve sauce warm or cold.
