A summer dessert with blueberries
It's blueberry season and we got busy filling up buckets at Earl's Berry Farm near Saugatuck, Michigan.
Oh boy, do we have a lot of fresh blueberries. Even after making a blueberry pie and two days of blueberry pancakes there's still a huge bowl full in the kitchen.
With all these blueberries around, I thought I'd experiment a little and came up with a... let's call it a blueberry pie sundae.
In a food processor I combined 1 cup of fresh blueberries.
2 tablespoons of sugar.
Half a tablespoon of corn starch.
A pinch of salt.
1 and a half tablespoons of fresh lemon juice.
Half a teaspoon of vanilla.
Then pulsed it all together and simmered it on the stove for about 2 minutes.
Then for the crust I smashed up a graham cracker.
And put it at the bottom of a cup.
Then a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
And poured the blueberry sauce on top while it was still warm.
