Wash the blueberries and remove any of the tiny, dried stems
Combine 1 cup of the blueberries, water, sugar and lemon juice in a small saucepan.
Cook over a medium heat for about 10 minutes.
Add the rest of the blueberries and cook for 8 minutes more, stirring frequently.
Remove and let rest for 10 minutes. Compote will thicken as it cools.
