Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups organic blueberries frozen **
  • 1 tsp corn starch
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp water

Instructions

  • Add all the ingredients to a small sauce pot and stir until the starch is dissolved.
  • Turn the heat to high for about thirty seconds, then reduce to medium. Stir slowly for about a minute, until the blueberries soften . When the blueberries are softened – all frozen bits gone, turn the heat to high again and stir briskly – for another minute. Then turn off the heat. That brisk heat should have activated the corn starch enough to thicken the sauce. If your sauce still seems watery, leave it on high for another minute – while stirring.
  • Allow the sauce to cool and thicken for a few minutes before serving. Best served right away, but could also be made ahead of time.

Notes

** if using fresh berries, the cooking time will be less
