Easy Blueberry Sauce

Some things are essential and routine in my world.  Every morning I have to have a cup of coffee.  Every time I come home from work the first two things I will do is wash dishes in my sink (because there are always dirty dishes available for my cleaning pleasure) and either start a load of laundry or switch over a load of laundry (if my family is luck I will fold a load of laundry).  Every June I go strawberry picking and every July through August I pick blueberries.  Without blueberry picking I would be lost in life.  It makes me happy.  It gives me peace of mind.  It provides me with fresh, bright and delicious treasures to bake and create with.
I have made blueberry jam before but never in my life have I made blueberry sauce.  What is wrong with me!?! Man, have I missed out!  It is such a tasty and simple treat to make.  And goodness it can be drizzled, poured or spooned over so many things.  Pancakes, waffles, crepes, vanilla ice cream, toast and even cake are all perfect for blueberry sauce.  Pop a spoonful in your mouth and you have got it made.
Grab some fresh blueberries, some sugar, a couple squeezes of lemon juice and some corn starch and you will be ready to join the EASY Blueberry Sauce Club.  Yup, that's right a club.  Those of us that worship and adore blueberries need to stick together.  It sure is going to be a BIG club!!

This recipe will make about 2 cups of sauce.  I doubled the recipe the first time I made it and have yet to make a differently as I just LOVE having an abundance of this delicious treat around for all of our sweet needs.
EASY Blueberry Sauce
(recipe discovered on Annie Eat's)
3 cups fresh (or frozen) blueberries
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons water
2 1/2 tsp cornstarch
On medium heat in a medium-large sauce pan heat blueberries and sugar together until berries start to pop.  As berries and sugar are heating up, in a medium bowl combine lemon juice, water and cornstarch and pour into berries.  Stir to combine and heat until it all comes to a lovely boil.   Continue to heat sauce over low heat for a couple of minutes until sauce thickens stirring occasionally. Remove pan from heat and cool.  Serve warm over whatever suits your fancy or eat cold by the spoonful.  Enjoy!

Happy Blueberry Sauce Making!
