Homemade Blueberry Sauce for cheesecakes
The Sauce is just a simple recipe that I came up with that really added to our dessert! I'm usually all about raspberry topping, but I had fresh frozen blueberries and they won, I'm so pleased they did!
2 Tablespoons Cornstarch
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
2 cups frozen Blueberries
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice (fresh squeezed or bottled)
Put sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan and mix together with a whisk or wooden spoon (this is an easy way to incorporate the cornstarch into the mixture and helps avoid little balls of cornstarch.) next add 1 cup water and turn heat to medium-high. Add your 2 cups blueberries, after mixture has boiled for 2 minutes turn heat down to low and allow to thicken- this will take about 10 minutes. Add 1 Tablespoon lemon juice and stir it in. Let cool at room temperature. store in the refrigerator.
