Do you ever have one of those weeks where it seems like every part of your life changes all at once? That has been this week for me, and it’s exhausting. Some parts are exciting. Some parts are scary, and some parts are just tragic and sad. But, overall, it’s overwhelming and exhausting.
Here’s today’s celebration, though: it is the last day of school! Kids get out early today, and teacher breathe easier! And my room is already pretty much cleaned up and ready for summer, too.
Last weekend, before life went crazy, I made this homemade blueberry lime syrup (or sauce or topping or whatever you want to call it!) and poured it over homemade honey vanilla Belgian waffles. Look for that post soon, because they were AH-mazing.
Luckily, I made enough of this blueberry heaven to last me all week. I’ve put it on hot cereal, on yogurt, and it’s making it’s way onto some banana ice cream tonight. It might find itself replacing the strawberry kiwi jam on my Sweet Cream Strawberry Cheesecake French Toast. I’m also thinking it needs to be drizzled over some angel food cake for our Memorial Day get-together. Yes. Yes, it does.
This would have been great if it were just blueberry, but the addition of the lime pushed it into the ‘I-can’t-stop-shoveling-this-in-my-mouth’ category.
If you’re like me, you don’t keep fresh limes on hand very often. If I don’t buy them specifically for something, I don’t usually have them. So I like to keep this stuff in my pantry. It’s 100% limes, and when you mix it with a little water, it tastes exactly like lime juice. Seriously – it’s real lime juice.
A mix of sweet berries and tangy lime that is sure to send your breakfasts and desserts into happiness overdrive!
- 1 (6 oz) container blueberries, about 1 1/2 cups
- 3/4 c, granulated sugar
- 1/2 c. water
- 1 tbsp. cornstarch + 2 tbsp water
- 1 1/2 tbsp. lime juice
In a medium saucepan, heat blueberries, water and sugar over medium. Stir often until sugar is dissolved.
Use a potato masher to mash some of the blueberries (I like to leave some whole and some in pieces).
Bring to a boil over medium-high. Stir in cornstarch+water mixture. Let cook, stirring constantly for 30 seconds.
Remove from heat, and stir in lime juice.
