Blueberry Sauce is super easy to make and goes great on pancakes, waffles or works great as a pie filling! If you want to know how to make blueberry sauce in your kitchen, read on for quick and easy instructions!
I recently found my fridge overflowing with blueberries (a good problem). They were so big and beautiful at the store that resisting them was impossible. I made this Blueberry Sauce last week with half of my loot and this morning poured it over a few stacks of pancakes for my cuties. After pushing the plates in front of them, I turned around to do a few dishes. When I turned back around, I could hardly believe my eyes. Both boys were LICKING THEIR PLATES CLEAN. We don’t claim to have superior manners here in the Porta house, but plate-licking is something that does not happen weekly.
So we’ve established that this Blueberry Sauce is delicious. Let me also tell you how totally easy it is to make. We’re talking ten minutes of your time, friends. Make the sauce while the pancakes or waffles are cooking and life will be good.
How long will Blueberry Sauce stay fresh in the fridge?
If your blueberries are threatening to wither, make the sauce and store it in a sealed container in the fridge for up to four weeks.
What else can you use Blueberry Sauce for?
Obviously, it will go great with waffles, pancakes or French toast, but you can also use it as a pie filling or cheesecake topping. Add it to a small dish of frozen yogurt or ice cream or spoon some onto your morning oatmeal. What are your favorite ways to enjoy Blueberry Sauce? Leave your answer in the comments!
How do you thicken Blueberry Sauce?
If you want a thicker sauce, perhaps one for a pie filling, add up to 2 additional tablespoons of cornstarch.
How do you make Blueberry Syrup?
For a thinner sauce, omit the cornstarch altogether and simmer for an additional 5 minutes.
