How to Make Blueberry Sauce

This blueberry sauce cooks on the stove in about 8 minutes.

  1. Mix the cornstarch and water together.
  2. Place everything, besides the cornstarch mixture, into a medium saucepan. Then mash the blueberries a bit with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. This helps the release the juices.
  3. Bring to a simmer and add the cornstarch mixture. Cook for 5 minutes while stirring constantly. The sauce will begin to thicken at this point.
  4. Remove from heat and allow sauce to cool.

This is a chunkier style blueberry sauce, providing wonderful texture to no bake cheesecake, waffles, pancakes and so much more. But the amount of blueberry chunks is up to you. For less chunks, mash up the blueberries a little more as the sauce cooks.
