Cranberry Blueberry Sauce

1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
3 cups frozen cranberries
3 cups frozen wild blueberries
1 Tbsp. (slightly heaping) cornstarch
1/4 cup water

Set berries out to defrost for about half an hour.

In a large pot, combine sugar and first amount of water. Heat over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves and mixture boils. Add berries; stir gently but constantly until mixture comes to a boil.

In a small boil, blend together cornstarch and second amount of water until smooth. While berry mixture stirring constantly, slowly dribble in cornstarch mixture. The mixture will clear and thicken as it boils. When mixture becomes clear and thick, reduce heat and let simmer for 5-7 minutes. Stir occasionally.

Pour into a heat resistant container and refrigerate to cool completely. Place a sheet of wax paper over top to help prevent a scum from forming on the top.

Makes about 3 cups.
