Wojapi (Dakota Berry Sauce)


4 cups blueberries or chokecherries, fresh or frozen
1-2 tablespoons cornstarch or arrowroot
Maple syrup
¼ cup water


In a saucepan, simmer berries and water over low heat, stirring occasionally. (If using fresh berries, you may need more water to keep them from scorching.)

Once the berries are broken down into a sauce, spoon out some sauce and whisk in the thickener.

Fresh berries should need 1 tablespoon, frozen might need 2 tablespoons thickener.

Whisk until completely dissolved, then add back to the rest of the sauce.

Sweeten to taste with maple syrup.

Serve on cornbread or ice cream.
