"Think of this as blueberries with a bite. My friend Catherine serves this sweet/tangy sauce spooned over ripened goat cheese for a knock-‘em-dead appetizer." — foodelicious

1 1/2 cups
red wine vinegar

This was delicious with cheese. Looking forward to serving it with 5-hour roasted duck, too. Thanks!
Made this recipe as written (other than,... I didn't realize I needed 8 cups so 4 were fresh berries and 4 were frozen that we picked 2 weeks ago) and it was wonderful. Not to mention super easy. Helpful hints: 2 quarts worked out to 8 cups of berries. If you fill the jars to the top of the jars, you will get 3 250ml jars (or 3 cups). I filled 2/3 of the way and filled the rest with the juice and ended up with 4 250ml jars (or 4 cups). Wanted to make again, but my husband forgot to bring home the berries that were on sale this week and the sale ended today! Thanks for such a different idea!
This was extremely delicious. I changed some steps around since I wasn't canning it and I'm lazy. The steps I skipped turned out to be the ones that make it gel up, so I have a sauce rather than a chutney. The specific step to NOT skip is the one where you remove the berries and then boil the sauce for 4 minutes. I'm guessing since I left the berries in it for that step, I caused extra liquid to be released. This was still a very delicious appetizer served over cream cheese! Thanks for the recipe!
I am not a fan of pickled things; however, this was presented to me as a chutney so that I would try it! The trick worked. Very flavorful and great with cheese and crackers. I think it would also work well with grilled meats and seafood. Caution: this will stain your clothes!
Wow. What a treat! The tangy berries pair perfectly with goat cheese. Bet they would be wonderful with roasted duck too... Thanks foodelicious!
What fuels MrB's fire on the days SunnyB ain't so cute? Pure sorcery and pickled blueberries, that's what. Thanks for the recipe - you rock. :)
I just finished making a quarter batch of this recipe (I am not a canner), and all I can say is that I will now spend this day looking for new ways to delight in this very yummy recipe! I am not a huge lover of the spices used in this delicacy, but is this ever tasty! I'm glad I bought the bigger size of chevre yesterday! *****+!!!
WOW!! I was intrigued by this recipe...much to the dismay of my family. They all thought it sounded bizarre. We sampled it over goat cheese last night and LOVED it!! Today we tried it over brie. Even better!! I am making another batch to be sure I have enough for us to eat regularly and perhaps have some available for gifts during the holidays.
