Blueberries…did you know that there is a gigantic poem by Robert Frost all about blueberries? Here’s a teeny piece of it.
“You ought to have seen what I saw on my way
To the village, through Mortenson’s pasture to-day:
Blueberries as big as the end of your thumb,
Real sky-blue, and heavy, and ready to drum
In the cavernous pail of the first one to come!
And all ripe together, not some of them green
And some of them ripe! You ought to have seen!”
(And you thought all you were getting on this blog was recipes!) Anyway, I am not at all surprised, because if any fruit deserves its own poem, it’s the blueberry. I love them, I love them, I can’t stop piling them into my cart at the local farm market…
Okay, maybe a LOT of vanilla cream sauce.
Maybe we what we are talking about is not eating blueberries with vanilla cream sauce, but vanilla cream sauce with some blueberries.
This recipe comes from the always awesome Pioneer Woman, so when you drink down the whole bowl of this decadent sauce with your berries, you can blame her, not me. By the way, her recipe shows this sauce with blackberries…and I am sure it would be just as good on strawberries. So whatever sort of berry person you are…cream sauce. Yum.
