  • Yield: Make about 1 quart

Ingredients

  • 3 cups fresh or frozen blueberries (about 1 lb)

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Method

1 Cook blueberries with lemon juice, sugar, salt, cinnamon: Place the blueberries, lemon juice, sugar, salt, and cinnamon in a medium saucepan. Heat on medium heat, stirring, until all of the sugar has dissolved.

While the mixture is heating, use a potato masher to mash up the blueberries.
