Blueberry Sauce Recipe

This week we have had new testimonials added to both the Belgravia Bed & Breakfast’s  Trip Advisor and  BBCanada.com listings.

One read:

“We have now completed our 3rd stay here and it’s like visiting family. Situated on the outskirts of Truro, within easy walking distance of the town, a beautifully appointed house with lovely, well equipped rooms. Breakfast was delicious as usual and we shall return again, if only to hope we get the blueberry waffles next time!”

We have guests staying with us this week for five nights while they do some genealogical research and explore Central Nova Scotia. We serve something different for breakfast each day, and so far this week they have had omlets and Eggs Florentine. Helen’s comment inspired me to serve our waffles with blueberry sauce today. There was not a bite left on anyone’s plate when I cleared them, so I thought I would share our blueberry sauce recipe:

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine:

  • 2 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 TBSP sugar
  • 1 TBSP lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup water
  • dash of salt

Bring to a boil and add:

  • 1 TBSP corn starch mixed with 1 TBSP water

Stir until thickened.

Top waffles with blueberry sauce, vanilla yogurt and wheat germ, and serve with maple bacon.

SO YUMMY – and this also works well for blueberry shortcake when put on a scone with whipped cream!
