I have four children. That is eight extra hands to help pick huckleberries with me every July that I can make good use of. Of course, it can take some doing to make those small hands actually kerplunk them into buckets instead of mouths- but the promise of this blueberry sauce and pancakes for supper usually does the trick.
The above photo required making a (THIRD!) batch of pancakes after supper and scrape the bottom of the syrup pan just to get this picture. You BARELY got a picture. So, yeah...it is edible.
Here is the recipe, which I doubled for my family of six (and will likely triple in the future.)
1 c berries
1 T. butter
1/2 c. water
1/3 c, sugar (or honey)
1 t. cornstarch
Mix cornstarch and water and then all other ingredients to a saucepan and boil until berries have popped. Reduce heat and simmer until the sauce has thickened.
Super simple. Super delicious.
