Works For Me- Blueberry Sauce

Someone is stopping by and there aren't any goodies in the house! I always try to keep a pound cake in the freezer, but it is not so easy to have fresh fruit hanging around. I try to make this easy blueberry sauce and freeze it, too.

Blueberry Sauce

1 cup water
1 cup bluberries-divided in 2
1/3 cup sugar- ( I actually use a bit less)
2 tablespoons corn starch
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
2 tablespoons lemon juice ( I've made it without,too)
1/8 teaspoon salt

Bring water and half of the blueberries to a boil. -3 minutes. Mix sugar, cornstarch and salt, then stir into into berries. Cook and stir until thickened and clear. (Not cornstarchy) Add in remaining berries and simmer a few more minutes. Stir in butter and lemon juice. Serve warm (melty ice creammmm) or cool in refrigerator.

Put this over cake or ice cream or both! Freeze a batch to keep on hand.
