Combine 1 1/2 cups blueberries, sugar and 1/3 cup water in heavy small saucepan.
Simmer over medium heat until berries burst, stirring often, about 10 minutes.
Add remaining 1 cup berries.

(Can be made 3 days ahead. Cover and chill.)
Serve warm.
Save some of this in the fridge, it’ll go on pancakes later in the week.

*This price is based on what I find them for at Trader Joe’s or WF, their generic brands. Dole is outrageously priced. They’re frozen, for pete’s sake. If you can only find them for $4.99 a bag, add another $0.18 per serving. This doesn’t seem like a lot, but I use blueberries kind of a lot, so it adds up.
