This is REALLY something unique. I made a batch last weekend. I had 6 people over for brunch and we had some at our waffle station and then at dinner, we ate the rest over ice cream. YUMMY!
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 3 tablespoons water (cold)
- 2 cups Our Family Garden, Cinnamon Applesauce
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
- 1/3 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
In a small cup, mix together the cornstarch and water; set aside.
In a medium non-stick saucepan, add the applesauce, blueberries, lime juice and sugar. Over low heat, stir until sugar is dissolved. (5-7 minutes)
Turn heat up to medium-high and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes, giving the berries a change to pop. If they have not popped after that time, mash the remaining berries with a potato masher just until they have broken up. Add the starch water and ginger. Continue cooking for 5 minutes or until slightly thickened.
Take off heat and can be use right away for hot foods like pancakes, waffles, french toast sticks, oatmeal, chicken strips, pork chops, grilled chicken breasts, etc… Or cool in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour to use as an ice cream topping or as a spread on toast or muffins.
