I love, love blueberries and we are right in the midst of our blueberry season here in the UK at the moment. I know my sister has been picking the juicy little blue jewels for a few weeks now in Canada. I can never get enough of them during the season and I always freeze tons to use in the Winter months. Today I decided to make a delicious sauce with them!
You can never have too many sauce recipes in your repertoire I don't think! This one has incredible flavours and it really pretty to look at. I used fresh ginger root, ketchup, chopped shallots, English mustard, honey for sweetness, some chili flakes for a bit of heat and of course lots of those gorgeous blue berries.
Chili flakes??? You say, chili flakes? Yes! This is a savoury sauce meant to be served with grilled meats and fish . . . not with pancakes, although you certainly could if you really wanted to. But this is a sauce that just begs to be served with grilled chicken and pork . . . turkey . . . salmon. Salmon is incredible with this. Trust me.
Today I served it with some grilled chicken and it was fabulous together. Sweet with some heat and a little bit of spiciness from the chili flakes and ginger. You can adjust the heat however you wish by adjusting the amount of chili flakes you add. I do hope you will give it a try and that you will love it as much as we do!
*Spicy Blueberry Sauce*Makes about 1 1/2 cups (335g)
You can use this as a barbeque sauce or just as an accompaniment to grilled meats. It goes very well with chicken, pork and salmon.
