Combine all the ingredients in a small saucepan and place over medium-low heat.
Bring to a simmer stirring occasionally to prevent burning.
Simmer for 8-10 minutes or until sugar is dissolved, blueberries release their juice and it has thickened slightly. (see notes if not thickened to your liking)
Serve immediately or store (up to a week) in the refrigerator until serving.
Be sure to taste the compote to check for sweetness. If the blueberries are sweet, you won't need anymore sugar. If the blueberries are not quite ripe, you may need to add a little extra sugar to your taste.Can I use frozen blueberries?Yes, simple allow a little extra time for the blueberries to thaw and thicken.Can this blueberry compote be canned like jam or jelly?No, there isn't enough sugar to sufficiently preserve the compote. However it can be frozen if you need to keep it longer.How can I thicken the blueberry compote even more?The syrup will thicken on cooling. However if you prefer and even thicker compote, mix ½ teaspoon of cornstarch (cornflour) with 1 teaspoon of water and add this mixture (while stirring) at the end of cooking. It will thicken almost immediately.
