- 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 cup orange juice
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1/4 cup cold water
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the blueberries, 1/4 cup of water, orange juice, and sugar. Stir gently, and bring to a boil.
In a cup or small bowl, mix together the cornstarch and 1/4 cup cold water.
Gently stir the cornstarch mixture into the blueberries so as not to mash the berries. Simmer gently until thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon, 3 to 4 minutes.
Remove from heat and stir in the cinnamon. Thin sauce with water if it is too thick for your liking.
*vanilla sugar: 2 cups granulated sugar and 1 vanilla bean split open. Mix both together and shake for a few days until vanilla perfumes the sugar.
