Homemade Blueberry Sauce - the perfect treat to pour over homemade pancakes or waffles. It's even delicious slightly warmed and drizzled on top of vanilla ice cream. Let me show you how easy it is to make this recipe.
A few years ago I posted a recipe for Homemade Strawberry Sauce one Saturday afternoon. This was back when I posted recipes on my site here without any real planning. I mean, I made the strawberry sauce, took a quick photo and bam...it turned into a blog post.
Homemade Blueberry Sauce
This recipe for Homemade Blueberry Sauce is the exact same recipe as the strawberry sauce, only you use blueberries instead of strawberries!It's just as easy and just as delicious.
That's what I love about this recipe. It's very easy to change the flavor of the sauce by changing one ingredient...the type of fruit you use. I have to say that the blueberry version is my favorite. Blueberries have always been my favorite...ever since I was a little girl.
How to Make Homemade Blueberry Sauce
- 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
- ¼ cup water
- 1 cup orange juice
- ¾ cup white sugar
- ¼ cup cold water
- 3 tbsp corn starch
- ½ tsp almond extract
- ⅛ tsp ground cinnamon
- In a saucepan, over medium heat, combine the blueberries, ¼ cup water, orange juice and sugar.
- Stirring gently, bring to a boil.
- In a small bowl, combine together the cornstarch and ¼ cup cold water.
- Gently stir the cornstarch mixture into the strawberries without mashing the berries too much.
- Simmer until the sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon; around three to four minutes.
- Remove from heat and stir in the almond extract and cinnamon.
- If the sauce gets too thick, you can thin it out with more water or orange juice.
How to Serve Homemade Blueberry Sauce
Serve immediately or transfer to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for 7 to 10 days.
- My favorite way to enjoy blueberry sauce is, of course, over homemade pancakes.
- A few other ways to serve the sauce for breakfast is over waffles, French toast or even oatmeal.
- Stir a few tablespoons into vanilla flavored yogurt.
- This sauce is even delicious for dessert! Serve over pound cake, rice pudding, cheesecake or even on top of ice cream.
How to Freeze Homemade Blueberry Sauce
If you have leftovers, which you might, you can easily freeze this sauce. I’ve done this quite a few times because the recipe does make a lot.
- Simply add the leftover sauce to a freezer-safe container and place in the freezer for up to 3 months.
- Do not freeze the sauce in glass mason jars.
- When you’re ready to enjoy the sauce again, just remove from the freezer the night before and warm it up in the microwave.
