Recipe: Blueberry Sauce
Makes 1 ½ cups 2 cups chicken stock or store-bought low-sodium chicken broth
¼ medium yellow onion
¼ sweet apple, such as Fuji
3 to 4 sprigs fresh thyme
2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
1 ½ teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch pieces
1. In a small saucepan, bring chicken stock or broth to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and add onion, apple and thyme. Simmer 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, turning over onion and apple, until stock is reduced by half.
2. With a slotted spoon, remove onion, apple and thyme from stock and discard. Add blueberries and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 20 minutes, or until liquid is reduced to ¾ cup.
3. Remove pan from heat. Add lemon juice, salt and pepper, and stir. Add butter and whisk sauce until butter is completely melted, about 1 minute. Serve hot, spooned over the Butter-Rubbed Salmon.
