Total Time:

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 medium shallot, minced (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup red-wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Preparation

  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.

Tips & Notes

  • 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.)
