  • 2 cups (250 g) blueberries See Note 1
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice See Note 2
  • ¼ cup (60 g) sugar See Note 3


  • In a non-reactive saucepan on a medium heat, add all of your ingredients. Stir well. Bring the mixture to the boil. - See Note 3.
    As the berries heat, they will release their juices. Stir to dissolve the sugar.
  • Once the mixture has come to the boil, lower the heat, and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Take the sauce off the heat, and using an immersion blender, blend the Blueberry Sauce until smooth, or your desired consistency.


  1. I have used fresh blueberries, but you can also use frozen.
  2. In Australia, the tablespoon is 20 ml or 4 teaspoons. In many other countries, the tablespoon is 15 ml or 3 teaspoons. You may have to adjust your measurements accordingly.
  3. I have used regular granulated white sugar, but you can also use caster/superfine sugar.
  4. Non-reactive bowls and saucepans are stainless steel, glass, ceramic or enamelled cookware. Aluminium, copper and iron bowls or pans are reactive. Acidic foods, such as lemons, may discolour and take on a metallic taste if these are used.
  5. Please note, the nutritional information is based on the entire quantity of the sauce that this recipe makes and does not include what you may serve it with.
