Cranberry-Blueberry Sauce

This sauce makes a great topping for a plain cheesecake or could be used like a jam.

1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
3 cups frozen cranberries
2 cups frozen wild blueberries
1 Tbsp. (slightly heaping) cornstarch
1/4 cup water

Set berries out to defrost for about half an hour.

In a large pot, combine sugar and first amount of water. Heat over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves and mixture boils. Add berries stir gently but constantly until mixture comes to boil.

In a small bowl, blend together the cornstarch and second amount of water until smooth.

While constantly stirring, slowly dribble cornstarch mixture into berry mixture. The mixture withh clear and thicken as it boils. When mixture becomes clear and thick, reduce heat and let simmer for 5 minutes.

Pour into a heat resistant container. Place a sheet of waxed paper over the top to help prevent a scum from forming on the top. Refrigerate to cool completely.

Makes about 3 cups of sauce.
