Sweet crisp watermelon drizzled with blueberry glaze. Cool things down this summer, serve your guest this simply delicious Blueberry Glazed Watermelon.
Hi all, it’s Celeste from The Whole Serving. I hope everyone is enjoying the summer eating lots of fresh fruit, I have been eating tons of berries and watermelon. However, several years ago I was unable to eat watermelon without getting sick. I’m not sure what it was maybe it was hormones. Now that I can eat it without any reactions, I’m enjoying it whenever I can.
It’s really hot here in Texas and slices of cool crisp watermelon are so deliciously refreshing. When there is a gathering of friends and family I like to spruce it up a bit. One of my favorite ways to do that is with this sweet blueberry glaze.
A fruit glaze is so easy to make. Simply boil your fruit of choice with a sweetener, I used maple syrup, when it has thickened strain the liquid from a solid or you can combine them together in a blender and have a thicker sauce.
Impress everyone and their taste buds, look at all that deliciousness.
Blueberry Glazed Watermelon
2 cups fresh blueberries
1/2 cup filtered water
1/2 cup maple syrup or agave nectar
- Place washed blueberries in a medium saucepan along with the water and sweetener. Bring to a boil and reduce to medium low.
- Simmer fruit, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. When blueberries burst and sauce has reduced by half it should coat the back of a spoon.
- Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. To separate the fruit from the sauce pour over a fine mesh strainer. For a thicker sauce place all of the ingredients into a blender and combine until smooth and well combined.
- Serve sauce drizzled over sliced watermelon with fresh blueberries.
