This is a great simple blueberry sauce that receives a nice tang from the addition of apple juice in place of the regular water. Great on cheesecakes, pancakes, or waffles. From epicurious.

Was gonna make this for a pancake topping, but things changed, & we used it over pound cake & frozen vanilla yogurt ~ OUTSTANDING & sooo easy! Definitely a sauce I'll be making again! [Made & reviewed in Healthy Choices ABC tag]

PERFECT! I wouldn't change a thing about this one, that's for sure! I made homemade waffles and set this sauce, whipped cream, and maple syrup out for my family this morning. All of them went for the blueberry sauce as opposed to the syrup. Thanks so much!

Delicious! I made it tonight and topped my cheesecake with it. The directions were excellent. Clear directions are very important to me.
