Ingredients

2 cups Ocean Spray® Blueberry Juice Cocktail

6 ounces fresh blueberries

6 thickly sliced (about 1 1/4”) pieces of French or Italian bread

1/4 cup cup extra virgin olive oil

6 slices fresh mozzarella cheese

12-18 large whole fresh basil leaves

Directions

In a medium-sized saucepan over medium high heat, bring juice and fresh blueberries to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low but still a simmering boil, continue cooking for about 25 minutes or until the it is reduced by about one-half. Turn off heat and set aside.

Toast until golden-brown the bread.

On individual serving plates, place a toasted slice of bread and drizzle with a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil. Place 2-3 whole fresh basil leaves. Place the mozzarella on top of the basil. Drizzle with a couple of tablespoons of the still warm reduced Ocean Spray blueberry sauce. (I garnished with an edible flower--optional!) Serve immediately.

Makes 6 servings.

Blueberry Sauce

Used it to top Cran+Rasp+Orange Frozen Yogurt. Added lemon peel and a bit of the lemon juice, just to better have it marry with my frozen yogurt. Maybe could add a stick of cinnamon to the boil too. But it was a great starting point, the recipe.
