BLUE AND BLACK BLUEBERRY SAUCE

BLUE AND BLACK BLUEBERRY SAUCE Tried Tested

2 cups Berries (I usually use half black and half blueberries, but you can you either or both)
½ cup water
¼ cup sugar
1 tsp lemon juice
2 tsp cornstarch

Method:
Mix ½ berries (can also use ½ blueberries and ½ blackberries), ½ water, all the sugar and all lemon juice.
Stir and bring to boil
Turn down heat, simmer 7 to 10 minutes
Mix cornstarch into rest of water until dissolved and add to the wild berry mix
Stir until thickens, then add the remaining blueberries
Cook 3 minutes on low.
Bottle and store
Note: When I make this sauce, I usually do up to 10 pounds of berries, and then I have it for a year (or maybe less, as we use it a lot). Nice as gifts and also very very yummy on ice cream!!!

If you want to use it as a topping on i.e a cheesecake, use 1 cup (size of the bottle in the picture), mix 1 packet of gelatin with lukewarm water, then add the berry mixture to it and mix through. Spread over your cheesecake and let it set. Yummy

Vegan Gravy Tried Tested

This is a great companion to the Lentil Loaf. I’ve adapted the recipe by making a roux with Earth Balance spread

Ingredients:
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup Earth Balance
2 cups vegetable broth
2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
1 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder

Directions:
In a small non-stick skillet, melt the Earth Balance and whisk nutritional yeast and flour together and toast over medium heat until it smells toasty, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a medium saucepan and whisk in remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil and allow to thicken as desired. Add salt and pepper to taste.
