  • 1 In 2-quart saucepan, mix blueberries and granulated sugar. Heat to boiling over medium heat, stirring occasionally. In small bowl, mix cornstarch and water. Stir into blueberry mixture. Return to boiling over medium heat. Cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly, or until thickened. Remove from heat; stir in lemon peel. Cool completely, about 45 minutes.
