Blueberry Sloppy Joes

    A sloppy joe with a slightly sweet twist and full of antioxidants! This would be great with turkey or chicken too.

    1 1/2 lbs ground beef
    1 small onion, chopped
    2 cloves garlic, chopped
    1 jalapeño, seeded and chopped fine
    1/2 cup tomato paste
    1/3 cup cider vinegar
    1/2 cup water(if you want to kick it up a bit, replace part or all of the water with bourbon!)
    2 tablespoons brown sugar
    1 tablespoon molasses
    1 tsp smoked paprika
    pinch of cinnamon
    salt and pepper to taste

    2 cups fresh or frozen (not thawed) blueberries

In a wide deep pan over medium heat crumble the beef and add onions and garlic.

Cook until a little pink remains then add the jalapeño.

While the meat is finishing mix together the tomato paste, water, sugar, molasses and seasonings.

When the meat has no more pink add in the sauce, mix well 

Add in the blueberries and mix well.

Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to medium low. 

Simmer for 30 minutes.

Uncover and simmer 5-10 minutes more until the sauce is thickened.

Serve on toasted buns with some provolone cheese!
