Yep, it’s that time of year again. Blueberries are abound, and, more importantly, on sale.
Here’s a quick and easy dessert sauce I’ve done recently for both myself and dinner parties:
Blueberry Dessert Sauce
1 Quart Blueberries, washed and checked for stems
1/4 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Pomegranate Blueberry Juice (such as POM brand)
1 Cup Acai Blueberry Juice (such as Bom Dia brand)
Combine all ingredients into a stainless steel saucepot. Bring to a boil over medium high heat. Reduce to a simmer and continue to cook, stirring often, until reduced by about ½. (Or until desired consistency.) Remember this sauce will continue to thicken as it cools.
I’ve served this over ice cream and cheesecake. The last time I did this recipe I couldn’t find the POM blueberry pomegranate and subbed the Acai blueberry juice. It’s very delicious and not quite as bitter. Either way, don’t feel to bad about the calories with all those antioxidants!
