This versatile fruit sauce is a terrific way to add berry goodness to a cup of plain low-fat yogurt, swirl into softened sugar-free vanilla ice cream, or layer between cubes of angel food cake in a fruit glass for a quick mini trifle treat. Or just go ahead and double your blueberry pleasure by serving this sauce with our bright Lemon-Blueberry Pound Cake or creamy Buttermilk Panna Cotta. You can also make this an "Anyberry Sauce" by swapping the blueberries for whatever berries you prefer or find fresh and ripe at the grocery store.

Ingredients

Fresh blueberries

2 cup(s), or frozen

Powdered sugar (confectioner's)

½ cup(s)

Water

2 Tbsp

Table salt

tsp

Ground cinnamon

tsp, or to taste (optional)

Fresh lemon juice

2 tsp

Instructions

  1. Combine the blueberries, confectioners’ sugar, water, salt, and cinnamon (if using) in a large saucepan and set over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the berries soften and the mixture forms a sauce, 5 – 7 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice. Serve at once, or let cool to room temperature. Refrigerate in a covered container up to 1 week. Just before using, shake the sauce well and serve chilled or gently reheat. Yields 1/4 per serving.
