My mother-in-law gave me this recipe. My family puts it on anything from pancakes to vanilla ice cream. It is best served warm, right after making. Fresh blueberries are recommended.

Directions

  1. Place blueberries in a large stockpot and crush with a potato masher. Add water and lemon peel; simmer over low heat for 5 minutes. Strain fruit through cheese cloth, metal strainer or food mill to remove pulp and seeds; reserve juice.
  2. In a large saucepan, mix sugar and 4 cups water. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, until temperature reaches 260 degrees F (125 degrees C). Add blueberry juice and boil for 1 minute. Stir in lemon juice and remove from heat. Let cool and freeze or can as desired.
  3. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Great recipe, easy to make with strawberries. If you alter the number of servings, don't add 4 cups of water in the second step. I had to use cornstarch to thicken it.

This is a wonderful recipe to top off Angel Food cake with. I substituted orange rind for the lemon rind, and apple/white grape juice for the lemon juice. I did not strain the pulp because I wanted to retain the fiber. I will save this recipe and use it again, perhaps as written next time.

This was very good, I did add some cornstarch to thicken it a little.
