A fantastic blueberry sauce to serve over ice cream, pancakes, waffles or to use in trifles. The orange juice and lemon juice both add lovely citrus zing to the sauce, which is fantastically easy to make! Use fresh blueberries if in season.
Made this sauce to go with the Dorset apple cake. Lovely citrus taste. Thankyou - 18 Sep 2013
I've made this at least four times as it's a quick and easy recipe to master. I like the consistency and the flavor of the sauce - not too thin or runny, yet not so thick I can't pour it on pancakes or spoon over Panna Cotta. I prefer this to store bought as it is not overly sweet and I know what ingredients are in it. Just use a little more sweetener, like a a few more tablespoons, if the blueberries are sour(taste them first) or do ALL orange juice - instead of 1/4 cup of water and 1/2 cup orange juice - do 3/4 cup orange juice. If the sauce is too thin use more thickener (cornstarch) and/or cook it a little longer. Most times the sauce thickens pretty well on its own in the fridge, however, if it's too thick - use less thickener and/or less frozen blueberries (thaw and drain) next time. Same with the lemon flavor being overpowering - use a little less. It's a fairly forgiving recipe. Experiment and make the recipe your own. Thanks you Bri bri for the recipe - it's become a family favorite. - 10 Jul 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
