Blueberry Sauce

 I got this recipe from my sister, Jeanie. She's always in the kitchen cooking for a million people. Sometimes I really can't imagine how she does it! She amazes me! She loves blueberries as much as I do and this sauce is fabulous! Spoon it over everything from pancakes, waffles, or French toast to a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a piece of toasted pound cake. Thanx my Jeanie!

1 cup sugar
2 tbs corn starch
1 cup water
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 tbs butter

In a small saucepan, combine sugar, corn starch, and water. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in blueberries. Reduce heat. Simmer for 8-10 minutes. Stir in butter until melted. Serve either warm or chilled over your favorite dessert.

I like to add a little squeeze of lemon, just at the very end. The sour balances with the sweet and it wakes up the flavor of the blueberries.
You can easily substitute other berries or fruits to make different kinds of fruit sauces. Try doing combinations of fruit too. Sliced peaches and raspberries would be fabulous or sliced strawberries and kiwi fruit.
