4 lb blueberries
1 cup maple syrup
2 tbsp. grated ginger
¼ cup brown sugar
1/3 cup lemon juice
Bring all ingredients to a boil over med-high heat in a shallow, heavy-bottomed saucepan, reduce heat to a simmer, and stir frequently to prevent scorching.
once sauce visibly reduces, bubbles get larger, and it reaches 220 degrees for a few minutes, pour into clean, sterilized 250 ml mason jars, wipe rims clean, apply lid tightly, and refrigerate.
