Fresh Florida Blueberries on a tangy cheesecake…It’s positively delicious!
- 1 whole cheesecake (homemade or store bought)
- 4 pints Florida blueberries, rinsed
- 1 cup Florida sugar
- ½ lemon, juiced
- 1 cup water
- Fresh mint sprigs for garnish
In a small sauce pot combine 2 pints blueberries, sugar, lemon juice, and water. Place sauce pot over medium high heat. Stir contents of pot as it comes to a boil, reduce heat to simmer. Cook blueberry mixture for 20 minutes or until it coats the back of a spoon. Strain blueberry sauce through a sieve if desired. Let blueberry sauce cool to room temperature, and store in the refrigerator until needed. Top the cheesecake with some of the cooled blueberry sauce, leaving extra for garnish. Place fresh leftover blueberries on top of the cheesecake and garnish with fresh mint. Serve the blueberry topped cheesecake with extra blueberry sauce.
