Simple Blueberry Sauce

Hey again everyone!

This recipe is extremely versatile. It takes just minutes to make and you can use it to top anything (think muffins, pancakes, waffles, cake), to fill a pie, anything you like.
For this recipe we're essentially making it so that you can buy up a bunch of blueberries when they are on sale at the store (as was with this situation), and keep them to use over time, instead of having to rush to try to eat them all fresh.

Other notes: you can do this with all kinds of berries, feel free to change what you use as a sweetener, and feel free to add other flavors to this- some vanilla at the end, a cinnamon stick in there as you cook it- get creative!

Start out with some awesome fresh blueberries- take advantage when things are in season!

All the ingredients at the beginning- doesn't look to appetizing, huh? Well it will transform...

...into this! This gorgeous vibrant sauce that goes great on everything!

Simple Blueberry Sauce
-brown sugar
I used about 1 1/2 to 2 containers of blueberries, 1/4 cup of water, and 2-3 tablespoons of brown sugar. These amounts are all very flexible- just do it to your taste. Put it all in a pot on the stove on medium-low heat, and cook until it progresses from mashed up blueberries to a thickened vibrantly blue-purple sauce that just screams blueberry. This will take 10 or so minutes. Stir as you go along.

The sauce on top of a plain cupcake- delish!

Savor it!
love, rue
