BLUEBERRY COMPOTE

There’ll come a time in your life when you neeeeeeeeed  this gorgeousness.  

Blueberries, citrus, and a little vanilla…this is perfect as a sauce, jam, or when warmed, even a syrup.  Add to plain Greek yogurt, into ricotta,  a protein shake, over my Oatmeal cottage Cheese Pancakes, or rolled in my Crepes with a a little cream cheese schmear…spooned over a low-sugar cheesecake…you get the drift.

The recipe makes quite a bit, but freeze and keep for when that I-need-some-blueberry-sauce-now emergency strikes.  

What?

 It happens.

5 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

1/2 cup Whey Low Granular (regular sugar, if you prefer)

1/2 cup Splenda Granular (OR use all Splenda or all WL)

Zest and juice of one large lemon OR medium orange

1/8 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 teaspoons cold butter

In a  large sauce pan – over medium heat – combine the berries, WL, Splenda, lemon, and salt.  Bring to a boil, stirring frequently.

Continue to boil for 20 minutes, or until reduced by about a third.  Add vanilla, and stir in the butter until melted. (The butter gives the sauce a beautiful glossy shine as well as another layer of flavor.  SO good!)

Remove from heat and let cool completely. Pour into 1/2 cup freezer containers and freeze.  Lasts in the fridge for a month or in freezer for one year.

Makes approx 3 cups sauce depending on how far it’s reduced, or about 48 servings, two-tablespoons each.

If you used all Splenda the calorie count and carbs would be even less.
