Ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 2 TBS water
  • Squeeze of fresh lemon 1/2 tsp
  • Optional: 1TBS more or less sugar, honey, or natural sweetener of choice to taste)

Instructions

  • In a small pot or saucepan, combine berries, water, and lemon juice. Simmer over med-high just until berries begin to burst, stirring occasionally.
  • Taste for sweetness and decide if you would like to add sugar, honey or your favorite natural sweetener.
  • Stir in sweetener if using and simmer until most liquid is absorbed.
  • Allow to cool completely and store in a mason jar or small glass container until you use.
  • Keeps in the fridge for a week.

Notes

The water content in berries vary, to thicken, you can always add in 1/8 tsp of cornstarch. To thin it out if you cook it down too much, simply add in a tsp or two of water.
Taste your simmered berries for sweetness to determine if you actually want to add sweetener or not since the sweetness of berries vary.
If you do add in 1 TBS honey, calories are 724 for 1 serving (1/2 cup) and sugar is 16 grams.
