This sauce is good on ice milk, ice cream, frozen yogurt, plain cake, and pudding. I also like to add it to my cereal and milk in the morning.


3 c unsweetened fresh or frozen blueberries
3 c water
2 tbsp cornstarch
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp margarine
dry sugar substitute equal to 1/2 c sugar
1/4 tsp salt


Combine blueberries and water in a saucepan, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes. Drain well, reserving the juice. Place drained blueberries and cornstarch, along wtih 1/2 cup of the blueberry juice, in a food processor and blend until smooth. Combine blended mixture with remaining juice in a saucepan, and cook, stirring, until thickened. Remove from heat and add lemon juice, margarine, dry sugar substitute, and salt. Stir until margarine is melted. Serve warm or chilled.

Makes 12 (1/4 Cup) Servings.
