  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • 2 cups blueberries, (fresh, or thawed frozen)


  • 2 tsp cornstarch

  • 1 tbsp water


  • In a small saucepan, combine the 1/4 cup (50 mL) water, sugar and lemon juice. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring, just until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the blueberries and let the mixture simmer for 2 or 3 minutes, until the blueberries are softened.
