Recipe: Blueberry Sauce (Parve, Vegetarian, Non-Dairy)

This gorgeous, sweet sauce can be made with fresh blueberries in the summer and frozen berries year round.

wedding dessert recipeWe post this sauce to accompany our baked pears for an autumn or winter celebration, but can’t you imagine it with something lemony? Let us know how you use it.

The recipe comes from one of my go-to cookbooks, Marlene Sorosky’s Fast & Festive Meals for the Jewish Holidays. Not all of the recipes in the book are kosher, but sticking to the kosher recipes, I’ve found them to be not only delicious, but fast and foolproof.

Ingredients for Blueberry Sauce

Maked 5 cups of sauce

  • 1 quart (4 cups) fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup water

Instructions for Blueberry Sauce

In a medium saucepan, stir all ingredients together. Bring to a boil over moderate heat and cook, stirring often, for 8 to 10 minutes, or until sauce thickens slightly and sugar is dissolved. The sauce will continue to thicken as it cools.

Make-Ahead Option

Sauce can be refrigerated, covered, up to 2 weeks.

Happy Anniversary Prince William and Kate! A Wedding Anniversary Party Menu

Happy anniversary, Will and Kate. To celebrate, I’m reposting Backyard Huppah’s kosher-fied version of the canapè reception Queen Elizabeth hosted for the royal couple following their wedding — and I’ve included recipes.

You can use this menu for your own hors d’oeuvre reception or cocktail hour. We’ve pared the number of canapes down from 23 to nine, creating a nice selection of savory and sweet, meat and parve, non-dairy and vegan. Most of the recipes have friendly make-ahead options for a self-catered affair for forty people, though you will need kitchen and serving help on the day.

If you’re feeling really nostalgic for the royal wedding, take a look back at William and Kate’s original wedding day canape reception menu.

Cheers!
