Blueberry season is in full swing, and I love finding new ways to appreciate the fruit. But before long, these blue beauts will have come and gone, too — so I always try to preserve Summer's bounty now for later down the line. For Summer veggies, it's quick pickling; for berries, I love a basic syrup or sauce.
This blueberry compote has become a fast favorite. It takes less than 15 minutes to make, and livens up everything from pancakes and waffles to ice cream. I used it in an original vodka cocktail and even stirred some in to basic bread pudding! Or, like I did with caramel sauce, bottle it in a pretty container and give it away as an edible gift. For the recipe, read on.
- 2 cups (two 5-ounce packages) blueberries
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- In a medium saucepan, combine blueberries with sugar and fresh lemon juice. Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer, and cook until most of the berries have burst, 8 to 10 minutes.
Makes about 1-1/2 cups.
