Nothing. NOTHING. Tastes better on vanilla ice cream than warm blueberry sauce.

Made with fresh summer berries, this simple topping takes less than ten minutes to prepare, yet makes all the difference on your desserts!

I cook this Warm Blueberry Sauce all year long with frozen blueberries. However, it’s always best in the summer time when blueberries are ripe and juicy.

We love to pick wild blueberries on the Blue Ridge Parkway. They make the most amazing sauce!

Warm Blueberry Sauce is fabulous over pound cake, custard pies, and creamy desserts like panna cotta and flan.

How to Make Warm Blueberry Sauce (Ice Cream Topping)

To Make Warm Blueberry Sauce

Place fresh blueberries, sugar, lemon juice, a little cornstarch, and salt in a sauce pot.

Simmer for a few minutes until the blueberries burst and the sauce thickens.

You can also add lavender buds (or leaves) to the blueberry sauce to give it that little extra something!
