This paste serves as the backbone for Blueberry Glaze and Blueberry Buttercream. (Recipe adapted from Adventures in Cooking)


  • ¾ cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 50 grams sugar (¼ cup)
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • Small pinch ground cloves


  • Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring with a wooden spoon and crushing the blueberries as they cook. Cook approximately 5 minutes until the blueberries are soft and the mixture is thick and deep blue in color.
  • Remove from the heat. Using a strainer (or a sieve) and the back of a spoon, press the blueberry paste into a bowl. Hold onto the blueberry bits in the strainer for use in other recipes or spreading on toast, waffles or pancakes.
  • Allow to cool. Store in airtight container in refrigerator or freezer.
