  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 6 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 1/2 cups blackberries
  • 1 tsp grated lemon rind
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch dissolved into 3 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

  1. Place blueberries and blackberries in a small saucepan. Cover with water and add sugar and vanilla. Heat over medium-high heat until mixture comes to a low boil and berries just start to break apart.
  2. Add dissolved cornstarch to saucepan and bring mixture to a rolling boil. Turn heat down and simmer on low heat for 2-3 minutes, or until sauce reaches desired consistency. Add water, one tablespoon at a time, if the sauce gets too thick.  Add lemon rind.
  3. Remove from heat. Puree in a blender if desired, or leave chunky. Add remaining blueberries and stir gently. Serve warm or cold.
