Yesterday I was taking stock of the fridge and what I needed to get from the store. I spied a huge container of blueberries that we got from Costco. My family is so weird when it comes to fruit. Either they gobble up all the berries, bananas, apples, oranges, etc. that I buy, or they never eat them and I have to figure out what to do with them before they rot.
The berries were looking a little grumpy, so I threw them in a pot with a cup of sugar, a few tablespoons of lemon juice (could use orange juice), 2 tablespoons of maple syrup, half of cup of water, and a splash of white wine. The alcohol cooks out, NBD. I cooked them on medium heat until they boiled, then I turned the burner down to low and let them simmer for 20 more minutes.
I have been converted to boxed pancake mix, but only this one… I never follow directions, so I add a dollop of vanilla yogurt and just enough water to create the perfect pancake batter. This also makes great waffles 😉
