Making Spoon fruit is a delicious way to use Summer’s fruit bounty! It is a technique that purees and reduces the fruit on the stove top, without added thickeners or refined sugar, to a jammy consistency.
For this luscious Blueberry Spoon Fruit, I used dates and a bit of fresh lemon juice, along with wild blueberries.
I use this spoon fruit in my Chocolate Blueberry Ripple Ice Cream Sandwiches.
Simple is often the best!
