Blueberry Balsamic Reduction {3 Dishes with Frozen Wild Blueberries}

My kiddos love blueberries, but we had never tried Frozen Wild Blueberries until we were asked to try them on behalf of Moms Meet. We received product for review and, just like my unfiltered kiddos, all opinions are honest and my own.

Have you ever made a whole meal with blueberries?

I took on the challenge of creating 3 Dishes with Wild Blueberries and each turned out more amazing than I could imagine! I’ll be sharing each of them over the next couple weeks and you can make a delicious meal with blueberries too!

First up, the thing that ties all three recipes together…

The great thing about making the three dishes I’m going to share is that a lot of it can be done at the same time. The first place to start is to make a Blueberry Balsamic Reduction, and it can be used in all three recipes.

So good, you’ll start thinking of all the other things you can make with it!

Blueberry Balsamic Reduction

What You Need

  • 2 cups Frozen Wild Blueberries (frozen or thawed)
  • 1/2 cup Balsamic Vinegar

What You Do

  1. Add blueberries and vinegar to a small saucepan over medium-high heat
  2. Bring to a boil and continue to boil 8 minutes stirring occasionally
  3. Turn off the heat and set aside

The liquid will be reduced by half, the blueberries will soften, and the sauce will thicken so that you can draw a line in the pan with your spoon. Definitely go ahead and sneak a taste – it’s awesome!

      Thanks Sharon! I wouldn’t have tried these without a push either, but I loved them!

      Haha! I get that! It did actually work out that each dish tasted differently and worked together, but I wouldn’t think of so that first. :) it was nice to be able to make the balsamic once for all three and chop similar things and get things done quickly, though.
