1 pint of blueberries
¼ of a lemon (squeezed)
zest of ¼ of a lemon
1 c. light brown sugar
Approx. 1 tbsp. of lemon-infused olive oil
Soak cherry wood chips for 1 hr. prior to smoking. Heat smoker to 200 degrees (F). While your smoker is heating up, wash the blueberries, and pat them dry on a paper towel. Place the blueberries in a 8” x 10” heavy duty foil pan. Add all the ingredients together. Mix.
Put blueberry mix in smoker and check 20 min. into smoking. Check every 10 min. after that. Smoke for 40 min. The blueberries should be tender to the touch, but not too mushy or too hard.
After the blueberries were removed from the smoker, I let them cool down for about 20 minutes.
I ended up making a Smoked Blueberry Sauce to accompany my lemon olive oil cake.
Smoked Blueberry Sauce:
1 tbsp. of lemon zest
½ c. of white granulated sugar
½ tsp. of cinnamon //or cardamom // or ginger //or ALL :)
¼ c. of blueberry flavored water
I placed all of the ingredients in a heated saucepan on the stove top (at medium heat). Simmer for approx. 30 minutes until the sauce has thickened considerably. Let it cool completely and enjoy!
