A quick and easy sauce made from frozen wild blueberries, honey and lemon zest. This sauce doesn't thicken up much because there is no sugar, but it does soak wonderfully into pancakes or a sponge cake. It's delicious poured over vanilla ice cream or plain yogurt.

This turned out really great! I needed a recipe that did not include sugar or orange juice and this was perfect. No need for salt. Mine turned out a little extra runny so next time I will probably opt for a 1/4 cup rather than a 1/3 cup of water.-24 Jul 2016
I had a bunch of blueberries that I needed to use, and I wanted a sauce to serve over grilled peaches with vanilla ice cream. I used 2 cups of blueberries, 1 tbsp. honey, about 2 tbsp. lemon juice and 3 tbsp. I skipped the salt. While cooking it, I thought it needed a little more sweet, so I added about a tbsp. of sugar. It tasted yummy as is, but once I turned off the heat, I threw in about a 1/2 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips! It sat on the stove while we had dinner, and I reheated for dessert. I made the "MMM...MMM Better Brownies" also from this site to serve with the peaches and ice cream. It was a HUGE hit!-19 Aug 2018
Fantastic. The only thing I changed was decreasing the water to 1/4 cup as others suggested. I will definitely use this recipe again.-08 Feb 2018
Blueberry BBQ Sauce
Blueberry BBQ sauce is going to be your favorite new favorite BBQ sauce. It&rsquos naturally sweet with a slight tang. It pairs well with grilled pork, especially ribs or chicken.
Homemade BBQ sauce is much tastier than most store-bought bottled sauces, and since the blueberries add natural sweetness, there is less very little added sugar in this recipe.

Blueberry Sauce with a Hint of Cinnamon
This delicious blueberry sauce recipe has just a touch of cinnamon.
The cinnamon really rounds out the flavor and adds just a hint of mysterious taste.
You can also leave it out if you are not a fan of the flavor.
This is a delightful fruit sauce recipe to top any number of desserts, from ice cream to cheesecake to shortcake, pound cake, angel food cake, yogurt and ice cream.
You name it. If it’s sweet and plain, try adding this fresh fruit sauce to it.
Absolutely fabulous! And blueberries are extremely healthy for us. Add blueberries and other berries to the menu whenever you can.
Or how about this blueberry goodness over lemon pudding cake? Yummy!
The nice thing about this sauce recipe too is that, since it is pretty much as nice made with frozen blueberries as fresh, you can make it any time of year and bring that bit of longed for summer to the table.
So simple to make too. Don’t you just love a recipe that looks gourmet but is simple and easy to prepare? I certainly do.

Blueberry Barbecue Sauce
It is blueberry season down here in the South and it seems like there is a u-pick blueberry field on every corner. My Kindergartner in the back seat has become quite the reader these days, so he reads said u-pick signs on every corner and we have to constantly have the same conversation about how picking blueberries isn’t something you just squeeze in on the way to T-ball. After a few days of nagging, the opportunity to finally put the kids to work in the blueberry fields came this weekend when I noticed that there was a blueberry festival at the local winery. Blueberry wine, blueberry beer and local food vendors? Yeah, let’s go pick some berries. A few hours later, we were back home with 5 pounds of fresh-picked, delicious fresh blueberries.
This blueberry barbecue sauce is the result of one of my blueberry projects from this past weekend. You see, 5 pounds of berries is a lot, so I was looking for all kinds of ways to use them in recipes. I have tinkered with these ingredients quite a bit, but I think the results below are pretty awesome. Let me know if you have suggestions on how to make it better.
Homemade Blueberry Sauce Recipe Notes:
I&rsquom using pure, organic Maple Syrup for a sweetener. You can use honey or agave nectar, but I&rsquom not sure of the proportions. Play around with it. This is a forgiving recipe. You can use processed sugar one to one with the maple syrup, but I hope you won&rsquot. Maple syrup is better for you!
Maple syrup contains antioxidants and minerals and is lower on the glycemic scale than processed sugar. However, As Authority Nutrition points out, it&rsquos still full of sugar and needs to be treated as such. So let the blueberries do the lions share of sweetening. Use fully ripe, naturally sweet berries and keep the added sweeteners to a minimum!
Blueberry Waffles with blueberry sauce
Tips & Variations:
- When adding the cornstarch to make it thick, do not add directly to the boiling pot. You have to mix it with a little cold water and mix to avoid lumps of cornstarch in your blueberry sauce.
- To add in a tangy flavor, aside from adding lemon juice, you can put some lemon rind. It makes a whole lot of difference!
- If lemon juice is not available, use orange juice instead. It is of the same deliciousness!
- Here are ideas on how to use your yummy, homemade blueberry sauce: top it on pound cakes, vanilla ice cream, warm toasts, or mix it into a pancake and you instantly have blueberry pancakes!
Blueberry Chipotle Barbecue Sauce
Sweet blueberries are the star in this easy to make barbecue sauce. Blueberry Chipotle Barbecue Sauce is ready in just 30 minutes and has a slight kick from the chipotle peppers. The perfect twist to your summer barbecue recipes.
Anyone super excited to see that blueberries are not so expensive right now that you have to leave your first born at the local grocery store in order to enjoy them? Well, I am! I don’t think Katie would be too thrilled if I traded her for a pint of berries, but I bet her room would stay clean for more than 2 hours if I did. Although, I haven’t seen her room lately because I close the door and pretend it doesn’t exist. So….maybe it’s secretly been the cleanest room in the house the past few months and I’m missing all the fun. Should I go take a peek? I think I’ll just keep myself in suspense….you know, just in case I open the door and a large rodent comes barging out the door.
Back to the berries. I love when they’re in season because the price doesn’t make you want to run screaming and you can pop them in your mouth with reckless abandon. Like candy, they’re seriously like candy…especially when they’re perfectly ripe and sweet. I’m drooling as I write this. I love to throw them in a lot of recipes like my ever popular Blueberry Coconut Yogurt Coffee Cake which everyone seems to LOVE on Pinterest. And I especially love them in savory dishes like my Blueberry Feta and Quinoa Salad….it’s an unlikely combination that is pretty incredible and only takes a few minutes to whip up. They’re also amazing as a frozen treat like my Blueberry Mojito Popsicles that are currently blowing up on Pinterest right now since the weather is warming up. Can you tell I love my blues?
Well, I decided to go savory again….and throw them in with some chipotle peppers for added heat. The result, this crazy, ridiculously tasty Blueberry Chipotle Barbecue Sauce. It’s pretty insane if I do say so myself. And it’s made without ketchup! This was my goal when creating this recipe…no ketchup. All natural ingredients…if possible. I think I did pretty well. Minus the worcestershire sauce…but I don’t know where that stands on the whole “clean eating” spectrum. I’m not an expert…I’m just a hungry woman on a mission to create amazing food and share it for all the world to see.
This recipe comes together rather quickly and is great to use right away, however, if you let it sit overnight….it will be spectacular. It’s an amazing way to add a little twist to your traditional barbecue ribs or chicken….or WINGS. Yep…try it. I think you’re really going to fall in love with it. And just for fun…I whipped up a fresh and crunchy Rainbow Carrot Salad. Want the recipe? Follow me on Facebook…it will be posted this weekend and will ONLY be available on Facebook. So, check it out! And have a wonderful weekend….I’ll see you all next week for #BrunchWeek!
