This basic blueberry sauce or compote is very easy to make with a few simple ingredients. The secret is to add some lemon juice and lemon rind to the sauce. The hint of citrus helps to bring out the flavour of the berries.
I like my blueberry compote to be a bit tangy, but if you like it sweeter feel free to add a touch more maple syrup or sugar. Make this your own. And then pour it on everything!
I love pouring this simple blueberry sauce over pancakes or waffles. Or even on ice cream!

- Turn the heat to medium low and let it simmer for about 5 minutes till the blueberries start popping.
