Blueberry Salsa Sparkles With Flavor

Pepper in fruit salsa? If you think it sounds odd, just try this colorful salsa. Blended with blueberries and other fruit, dashes of red and black pepper add just enough heat to kindle a delicious combination.

Serve this lively flavored sauce with ice cream and pound cake, as shown here. Or try it as a side with smoked ham, grilled pork chops or chicken.

Fresh blueberries are available year round and are most abundant in midsummer-ready to blend into smoothies, toss into your favorite chicken salad, or sprinkle over lemon meringue or cream pie. You should know that blueberries are loaded with antioxidants. Studies show that antioxidants may help reduce the buildup of cholesterol that contributes to cardiovascular disease, stroke and other age-related diseases.

Spicy Blueberry-Fruit Salsa

4 cups fresh blueberries

11/2 cups diced mixed fruit (such as melon, grapes, pineapple or kiwi)

2 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons lime juice

1 teaspoon grated lime peel

1/2 teaspoon ground allspice

1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper

1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/8 teaspoon salt

In a small bowl, combine blueberries, mixed fruit, sugar, lime juice, lime peel, allspice, red and black peppers and salt. Serve immediately or refrigerate covered, up to 4 hours.

Yield: 51/2 cups

    The picture of this T-fal pan is deceiving. It almost looks like it has a metal cover and because of that I almost didn’t order it. The description says glass cover so because of that I did order it, taking a chance on that alone. When I got the pan, I was truly impressed. It’s a great pan! Non-stick inside and out, heavy glass cover and a really nice cushion grip solid tight handle. It’s not a cheap thin pot by any means. I’m glad I purchased it. It’s much more impressive in person and it comes well packed too. I would definitely buy another when I need one.

    EDIT 5-22-2014

    From Comments:
    Bummer, I was hoping to get the product as you described but unfortunately mine matches the picture exactly. No strainer feature and no pour spouts.

    ————————————–

    So the product has reverted to the described product at some point and my review is moot.

    If anyone ever gets the updated product again post a comment so I can get another one like they had.

    Thanks!!!

    MOOT REVIEW – PRODUCT CHANGED – AGAIN.

    Great pot that cleans easy, but the pictures and description are out of date or lacking at this writing.
    The new model is nicely enhanced but not if you don’t want the undisclosed changes.
    I will review the notable differences first.

    —————

    SMALL POUR SPOUTS —– on both side of the pan and deep lid with dual sized lid strainers.
    Turn the lid to expose holes (Two sizes) in the edge for venting or pouring – chrome or Stainless Steel (? the glass lid, deep metal edge, is not aluminum and not magnetically attracted).

    Another product on Amazon has larger spouts and strainers.
    New – WearEver A8342465 Cook & Strain Stainless Steel 3-Quart Sauce Pan by T-fal
    This is as close as I see on Amazon for illustration of the spouts.

    The lid has a vent hole as shown or a digital electronic temperature probe can be inserted.

    The lid handle is now a hoop
    WearEver A8012474 Comfort Grip Nonstick Oven Safe Dishwasher Safe 3-Quart Source Pan with Glass Lid Cookware, Black
    This is as close as I see on Amazon for illustration of the handle.

    —————

    I am glad to have this pot and at under 20 dollars it is a steal to me.

    Next – Some changes from old reviews.

    Another review shows a different non-ridged bottom, more likely to slide.
    It now comes with a flat bottom with concentric quarter inch grooves and the contact areas to the stove have the same slight texture and finish as the sides.

    It has a bend/curve between base and sides to prevent cooking or cleaning problems a sharper edge could cause.

    The pot and lid handles are large and nicely protected from heating up.

    Non-stick interior and exterior with a heavy glass cover.

    There is NO temperature gage at the bottom of the pot.

    —————

    Another reviewer points out he “bought a dishwasher-safe nonstick pan, to find that the labeling on this one actually recommends hand washing instead. If cleaned in the dishwasher, it advises you to re-season it every 10 washes.”

    Seems everyone has to say dishwasher-safe to make a sale now days. Just don’t do it.
    If something is not stainless steel or glass like – take “dishwasher-safe” to mean “it doesn’t hurt the dishwasher” and just clean by hand.
    It really cleans up easy.

    —————

    These are general remarks from printed instructions under shipping cardboard.
    Be sure to read all the instructions.

    “Suitable for all heat sources except induction” – gas, coil/solid electric, halogen.
    Safe to 350 degree F / 175 degree C.
    Do not use under the broiler.
    Use only low to medium heat settings and do not boil dry or use abrasives.
    Cooking at ultra high settings can cause fumes dangerous for certain animals.
    Made in China.

    —————

    Enjoy!

    I love T-Fal cookware. I’ve seen other reviews that say it isn’t what it used to be, but I’ve bought a couple of different pans recently and they seem just as heavy and durable as the set I got 10 yrs. ago [complete with chicken fryer pan(QVC)] and I’m still using most of it. I would have given this pot 5 stars BUT, for some weird reason, (I fear just for looks), T-Fal made this pan with a right-angle, bend/curve between base and sides. Starchy food tends to compact into such angled corners, the old ones have a slightly more gradual curve which is a much better design. Sadly, if this pot is as durable as the last, I’ll be struggling with these corners for a lot of years.
