Sauces and Salsas


  • 2 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 medium shallot, minced (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 2 tbsp brown or granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp red or white-wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed chili flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Place ingredients in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir until the sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the blueberries have mostly broken down and the sauce has thickened, about 20 minutes.
  2. Spoon into a bowl and refrigerate until chilled and thickened, about 2 hours. Store in the refrigerator until needed.
