"Delicious and so easy, and it really dresses up the simplest ingredients to make memorable desserts! Try it layered with vanilla pudding and crumbled Biscoff cookies. Yum!"

"Very easy and so good! I used coconut sugar instead of white sugar & serve this over Belgian waffles with a little almond butter. Have enough left over to use over ice cream later"

"I used 2 1/3 cups of berries because that's what I had, didn't increase anything else. It is excellent."

"Very easy and delicious way to use all the blueberries in my yard! I made this with a recipe for a sour cream pound cake I found on TOH. Perfection! I doubled the recipe and took it to a family gathering."

"A friend gave me a container of fresh blueberries I used them to make this sauce and served it with Angel Food cake and with homemade vanilla ice cream on July 4th. It was simple to make (I left out the grated lemon peel & added 1/4 tsp. almond extract) and it was delicious. Friends really liked it, too."

"This is hands down the BEST Blueberry sauce recipe I have tried. I have done this several times with lemon juice, but ran out one day and used orange juice and orange peel. Still yummy and oh, sooooo gooood over ice cream, pancakes and in milkshakes."
