Tasty as crepe filling I liked this. I wanted a blueberry sauce to go with fruit crepes. I didn't measure the lemon zest or juice, and just used the half lemon I had left. Found it somewhat thin, so I whisked in 1tsp of arrowroot and it made it super thick. Worked good as a filling instead of a sauce. We wrapped up double-layered crepes like tortillas. Pros: Happy it had honey instead of sugar Cons: Somewhat thin

Love it! I have made this 3 times now and enjoy it every time. I made it to accompany the Buttermilk-Oatmeal Pancakes yesterday and it was delicious - I did drizzle the pancakes with a little maple syrup, added the Chunky Blueberry Sauce and a dollop of cottage cheese on top! Excellent! Pros: Blueberries!

I actually didn't really care for this. I followed it to a T but it was overwhelmingly sour. That's too bad too it smelled and looked amazing....

delicious A great alternative to macerated strawberries on angel food cake, topped with whipped cream. Whole family loved it, and the cake soaks up the juice well for a tasty treat. Pros: easy, fresh, fast

Sounds great as an alternative for syrup on my whole wheat-blueberry pancakes! Quick and easy to make. I plan to make some soon; but I'll probably use a bit of raw sugar in place of the honey.
