Blueberry Sauce

Ingredients:
2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
1/4 cup water
1 cup orange juice
3/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup cold water
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preparation:
In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the blueberries, 1/4 cup of water, orange juice, and sugar. Stir gently, and bring to a boil.

In a cup or small bowl, mix together the cornstarch and 1/4 cup cold water. Gently stir the cornstarch mixture into the blueberries so as not to mash the berries. Simmer gently until thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the almond extract and cinnamon. Thin sauce with water if it is too thick for your liking.

RECIPE: NOVA SCOTIA BLUEBERRY GRUNT: πŸ‘©β€πŸ³ If Nova Scotia had an official dessert, it might just be Blueberry Grunt. Named for the sound it makes while cooking, packed with blueberries and made in a single pan on the stove.
FRUIT
1 quart blueberries [4 cups]
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
DUMPLINGS
2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar [Use up to 2 tablespoons]
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon shortening
METHOD
Put berries, sugar and water in a pot, cover and boil gently until there is plenty of juice.
[For the dumplings,] sift flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a bowl. Cut in the butter and shortening and add enough milk to make a soft biscuit dough. Drop by spoonfuls onto the hot blueberries in a pot. Cover pot tightly and do not peek for 15 minutes. Serve hot.
Did you know that blueberry grunt has it’s own Canada Post stamp?
