One of the things I like best about our annual trip to pick blueberries is that so much of the harvest ends up in our freezer and I get to enjoy them in January when everything is dark and cold and fruit is definitely not in season locally.
One of the many ways I utilize those frozen blueberries is to whip up a batch of blueberry topping to serve over waffles or pancakes. This topping – it’s definitely thicker than a sauce – is a great way to get blueberry flavor in all your bites without chasing berries as they roll around your plate. It takes just minutes to put together and can easily be modified to fit your tastes.
Not only does the sauce come together quickly, but I don’t have to buy a single ingredient to make it happen. If you keep berries in your freezer (and this should work with any sort of berry, though I haven’t tested it), you’ll likely be able to make this on the fly anytime.
Or you could serve it over ice cream, if that’s more your speed.
