Here's an exceptionally easy condiment, perfect for a summer barbecue. Not only great on burgers, it's terrific as a glaze on grilled salmon or served alongside barbecued chicken.

  1. Place blueberries, sugar, vinegar, ginger, lime juice, salt and pepper in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir until the sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the blueberries have mostly broken down and the sauce has thickened, 20 to 30 minutes. Spoon into glass jars or a large bowl and refrigerate until chilled and thickened, about 4 hours.
  • Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks or freeze for up to 1 month.
  • To oil a grill rack, oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.)

Blueberry Ketchup -better called Blueberry Chutney I've made this on several occasions. It's equally good made with fresh or frozen blueberries(the small wild blueberries are especially good.) It's a great condiment, and I'm not above popping a teaspoon of it into my mouth all by itself! I'd say that except for the sugar, it's pretty healthy, too. Pros: Absolutely Delicious

This is wonderful! It is equally good with chicken, pork or beef. I haven't tried it with fish yet, but I imagine it will work just as well. I, personally, love it on hamburgers! Try this; you won't be disappointed. Pros: Amazing flavor, easy to make, goes with any meat.

Where are the shallots?! Tasted uniquely great on grilled salmon! Pros: Sweetness blends great with the tangy vinegar, zesty lime, and savory salt and pepper. Cons: Didn't see the directions to include the shallots, so almost didn't use them. Glad I did
