  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  • Combine blueberries, sugar, lemon zest, and lemon juice in a nonstick skillet.
  • Cook over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, for 10 to 12 minutes, or until juices are bubbly and fruit is tender.
  • Remove from heat and set aside to cool a little. If sauce gets too thick, add a tablespoon of water at a time to thin it down to a desired consistency.
  • Serve warm, or transfer sauce to a small 8-ounce jar; seal with a lid and keep refrigerated for up to 7 days.
