Just thinking of this sauce makes me drool a little.

I made it this past weekend, because… well… I found the recipe and didn’t think I could go on if I didn’t make it.

I was right.

It is life changing.

I decreased the amount of sugar in the recipe because, let’s be honest – we all know that I get enough sugar. Plus, I really wanted to be able to taste the blueberries.

I spooned it over some tart frozen yogurt – incredible!

And I may have drizzled a bit over my yogurt and fruit throughout the week.

It makes the days so much better.

 

 

But my favorite use for it?

That would be eating it off the spoon.

I am one classy lady.

 

 

Blueberry Caramel Sauce

from Eating Well

2 cups fresh blueberries

5 tablespoons water

3/4 cup sugar

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

pinch of sea salt

Combine blueberries, 1 tablespoon water and a pinch of sea salt in a saucepan over low heat. Stir and mash until blueberries become a sauce-like consistency, about 5 minutes. Set aside.

In another saucepan combine water, 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice and sugar. Stir over low heat until sugar dissolves, then increase heat and boil without stirring until syrup is golden. Occasionally swirl pan, cooking for about 7-8 minutes.

Remove from heat, stir in blueberry sauce and let stand 5 minutes.

Stir in remaining lemon juice and let cool to room temperature.

 

 

 

 

Go make this caramel sauce. And then grab a spoon and dig in. It will make you do the happy dance.

    maybe a dumb question – does it taste like caramel? have the consistency of caramel? I’m confused by that for some reason…

    Reply

    • Jessica — August 27th, 2010 @ 6:21 am

      Yep! Tastes like caramel with blueberries – and it is almost as thick as regular caramel, but gets a bit thinner when you combine the blueberry sauce.

    How did you manage to eat such a small scoop of frozen yogurt with that sauce? I could easily clear a half gallon with that drizzled on top!
