What can you serve savory blueberry sauce on?
When I lived in New Jersey, I was introduced to Jersey blueberries. Theyre super large, plump, and juicy berries made of my favorite color a dark shade of indigo blue. And since we eat with our eyes, its no wonder that blueberries are one of my favorite fruits. I especially love that dark blue blueberries transform into the prettiest shade of purple when theyre cooked. Not many fruits change colors like this. That makes blueberries pretty special.
I prefer to cook a portion of the blueberries with maple syrup and water until theyve burst. Then I add a cornstarch slurry to thicken it up just a little. And then, the remaining blueberries are added for just a few minutes, that way the tiny little wild blueberries remain intact. So, this is what I enjoy most about this Blueberry Sauce the tiny little blueberries contained in a silky smooth sauce. Its simply divine!
There are so many different ways to use this delicious Blueberry Sauce! Obviously, my favorite use is served warm over blueberry pancakes! But its also absolutely delicious served with crepes, oatmeal, porridge, mush, polenta, cake, and muffins.I especially enjoy eating it chilled with yogurt and cheesecake. It also makes a tasty blueberry and granola yogurt parfait.Â
First things first, I love, love, love your food blog! Secondly there is a restaurant where we get blueberry pancakes with blueberry syrup and the blueberry syrup has just a hint of cinnamon, it is out of this world! The only way to describe it is to say it tastes like Christmas morning! I have been thinking about trying to make my own blueberry syrup, but didnt know where to start, so this is perfect! Will definitely be trying it out soon!

Wouldnt it be great if you could pick your own blueberries right off the bush Oh, but you can!Â Im not talking about growing your own blueberries. That would be nice but not all of us can do that. As much as I would like to, it really does not fit into my realm of gardening.
One year we stumbled across a blueberry farm in Missouri. It was fabulous! I actually felt like a kid in a candy store. There were blueberries everywhere! I didnt know where to start first. There were blueberries over here, over there and oh no! Look at this one! Look at that one over there! We had so much fun that day. It is now a tradition to take an afternoon and pick fresh blueberries.
Blueberry Compote and blueberry syrup are very similar to one another but with one main difference. The compote is chunky and the syrup has a smooth consistency. The smooth consistency is achieved by mashing the blueberries while cooking and then straining to remove the blueberry solids.
Not only is this Compote easy to make, there are also so many wonderful ways to enjoy it. However, it is so tasty that eating it by itself is a treat in and of itself. Here are some of the best companions for this Compote.
Honey, brown sugar and maple syrup can easily replace the regular granulated sugar in equal parts. It is important to note however, powdered sugar should not be used for this recipe. Powdered sugar contains cornstarch which will cause the compote to become too thick.
How should this compote be stored and how long will it last?
For freezer storage, place in an airtight freezer container or bag. This Blueberry Compote will last for about 3 months in the freezer. When ready to use simply defrost in the refrigerator overnight.
