"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!"
"I use this on pancakes, I mix it in oatmeal and use it on vanilla ice cream. Delicious!"
"I have made this recipe several times and everytime I do everyone raves about how good it is, especially over blueberry pound cake or just plain pound cake"
"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"

"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."
