Fresh-Pressed Olive Oil Club

Double Blueberry Sauce

Double Blueberry Sauce

Perfect over vanilla ice cream and a true treat as a topping for the lemon ice cream.


  • 2 cups fresh blueberries 
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice 
  • Pinch of fine salt
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil  


Mix 1-1/2 cups blueberries, cornstarch, sugar, water, lemon juice, and salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Turn the heat down to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes. Off the heat, use a potato masher to mash the blueberries a bit. While still warm (but not hot), fold in the olive oil and the rest of the blueberries. The sauce will continue to thicken as it cools.

Yields 2 to 2-1/2 cups
