Wild Blueberry Rosemary Black Peppercorn Sauce

Ingredients

  1. 2 cups (500 mL) Wild Blueberries
  2. 1 tbsp olive oil
  3. 1 tbsp butter + 1tbsp to finish
  4. 1 shallot diced
  5. ¼ cup (50 mL) maple syrup
  6. 10 turns milled black peppercorns
  7. ½ tsp sea salt
  1. In a saucepan, on medium heat, add olive oil and butter until it starts to brown then add shallots, wild blueberries, and maple syrup.
  2. Bring all ingredients to a boil, reduce heat and let simmer for approximately 4 to 5 mins, using a whisk to break up the wild blueberries.
  3. Once cooked, remove from burner and finish with 1 tbsp. of butter and you are ready to serve.
  4. This sauce could be done ahead of time and reheated as needed.

* Personally I will usually strain the leftover sauce and turn it into a coulis to serve on vanilla ice cream. It’s sweet, tart and peppery – a nice treat.
