This is very delightful. A wonderful way to use blueberries. I didn't find it was sour, but maybe my blueberries were sweeter. Actually, for my taste, I'd increase the lemon juice a little. I'll certainly be making this again. I can see it now... hot summer day on the deck, sipping Blueberry Lemonade. Thanks Sandangel for a lovely recipe. Made during the Spring PAC 2009 Event.
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 2 cups water
