2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar (add little more if you like it sweeter)
2 tablespoons fresh lemon (substitute orange juice if no lemon)
2 tablespoons cornstarch, mixed with 2 tablespoons cold water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract zest of 1 lemon (substitute1 orange if no lemon) (about 1 tablespoon)
1. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the blueberries, 1/2 cup of water, sugar and lemon juice. Stir frequently, and bring to a low boil.
2. In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of cold water.
3. Slowly stir the corn starch into the blueberries, taking care not to crush the blueberries. Simmer until the homemade blueberry sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon, about 5 minutes.
4. Remove from heat and gently stir in vanilla and lemon zest.
