Blueberries, like strawberries and blackberries, grow wild throughout Louisiana. Simple desserts made with these ingredients can be found on any dinner table within the state. Here, blueberries and cane syrup are combined to create a wonderful topping for ice cream or fruit. Try placing a ladle of this hot sauce on top of freshly baked biscuits or pancakes for an interesting and delicious change.
