This blueberry sauce can be made with fresh or frozen berries. It is a great dessert on top of cheesecake, ice cream or as a topping for morning pancakes.
2 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen
2 Tablespoons of real maple syrup
1 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
1 teaspoon grated orange zest or Grand Marnier
Put blueberries, maple syrup, cinnamon and nutmeg in a small saucepan and heat to boil. Lower temperature and add orange zest. Heat until desired consistency.
Note: Today is National Cheesecake Day!
I always have a cheesecake in the freezer for a go to dessert. My favorite is Chuckanut Bay Cheesecake. They have a variety of cheesecakes (here I used the New York) and I love their new individual serving cheesecakes, we often split a small one. They have a great variety of flavors and also gluten free, and no sugar. You can find them at www.chuckanutbay.com
