Warm Blueberry Ice Cream Topping

This here is a wonderful little way to cure a hankering for some pie ala' mode when you don't have any pie.  Especially when you want to spend about a total of 3 minutes on the whole sha-bang.  It is a quick and simple way to make your average vanilla ice cream a super special treat for a change.  And the best part is that you can basically do the same thing with just about any other fresh fruit that you have on hand.  I love to do this with peaches, raspberries or cherries too.  But, if I had to chose, it would be blueberry all the way.  As I always say, "Sweets for the sweet!"

1 cup fresh blueberries
3 T. of sugar
2 tsp. of lemon juice
2 dashes of salt
1/4 tsp. of real vanilla extract
vanilla bean ice cream

-In a small saucepan, over medium heat, stir together the first four ingredients and bring to a boil.  Boil for 1 minute while occasionally stirring.  Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.  Let stand about 1 minute before pouring over a couple scoops of vanilla bean ice cream.  Serves 2.  Enjoy!
