The secret to this recipe is to not serve it right away! I tasted it on the stove when done and thought too much OJ.
I served breakfast about an hour later and reheated the syrup and the flavor totally changed it was ALL BLUEBERRY! Flavors just needed to settle. Wonderful recipe!!!
Okay I originally rated this a 4 but when I tasted it 2 days later it was amazing. Very orangy in the beginning but flavors really blended. Used frozen blueberries strawberries and rasberries. I have enough to feed an army right now but I will freeze and use next month for family reunion.
This has become a staple at my house. We make it almost every weekend to put over waffles or pancakes. I do use frozen blueberries when I can't get fresh. Do not freeze this recipe, it will thaw with a funky texture!
This was not my favorite and I know I would have liked it even less had I followed directions exactly. Looking over the recipe, it appeared the blueberry flavor was going to be lost in orange, almond and cinnamon - TOO much going on here - and for me, these were competing rather than complementary flavors as well. I reduced the orange juice by half (while at the same time reducing the cornstarch to compensate) and it still had more orange flavor than I would have preferred for a BLUEBERRY sauce. I eliminated the almond extract and cinnamon altogether. Finally, I reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup and the sauce was plenty sweet - an extra quarter cup would have been cloyingly sweet. So...by eliminating the cinnamon and almond extract, and reducing the amounts of both the sugar and the orange juice this would be greatly improved - but then it wouldn't be this recipe.
Absolutely wonderful...I made a few minor changes...I only used 3/4 cup orange juice,(and added 1/4 cup water to make a total of 1 cup) because the juice I used is quite strong(Tropicana)and I only used half the cornstarch and water mixture because I like my sauces quite runny. In the end I got wonderful reviews for this sauce which I used with a lemon cheesecake...Yummy!!
This turned out perfectly! I doubled the recipe and served it after a dinner party over basic cheesecake. It is the perfect consistency and DELICIOUS! I used frozen wild blueberries. YUM! I'm glad I doubled the recipe so we have some for pancakes! Thank you!
