  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 1/2 inch piece fresh ginger, grated
  • 3 cups blueberries
  • ¼ cup real maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • ½ teaspoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. In a skillet over medium heat, heat the olive oil, then cook and stir the onion, garlic, and ginger until onion has softened, about 8 minutes. Add in all of the remaining ingredients (yes, all of them) and stir them around to combine. Let the mix simmer over medium-low heat until the sauce is slightly reduced and bubbling, 5 to 7 minutes.

  2. Take the skillet off the heat and let it cool slightly. Pour the sauce into a blender no more than half full. Put the cover over the blender, make sure to hold it down, and pulse the sauce a few times before leaving on to blend. Keep pureeing the sauce in batches until it's all smooth.
