Hello glorious summer!
One of my favorite things about this season is all of the fresh produce available! Sure you can get berries and other summer produce during the other three seasons, but I always wonder where they’re getting “fresh” blueberries or strawberries in December, right?
I wanted to make something this week which took advantage of the bounty of fresh fruits my local grocery currently has. Blueberries were on sale for $1/pint, so I thought I’d take this opportunity to make something featuring them. I found this sauce recipe from America’s Test Kitchen and have been slightly addicted ever since. It goes great on so many things: ice cream, yogurt, angel food cake, baked oatmeal. The list is endless. Plus, it’s super quick and easy to whip up, which makes it a winner in my book!
P.S. Check out the cute pic of my nephew blueberry picking at the bottom of this post. I wonder how many blueberries he picked versus how many he ate?
- 4 cups blueberries
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- Put 2 cups of the blueberries in a bowl and mash with a potato masher. Add sugar and remaining 2 cups of blueberries. Stir to combine. Let sit for 30 minutes.
- After 30 minutes, pour blueberry mixture, including all accumulated juices into a small sauce pan, over medium heat. Stir frequently for about 6 minutes, or until sauce slightly thickens.
- Remove from stove and let cool for 1 hour. Serve!
