Preheat oven to 250 degrees.

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine 1 cup water, sugar and lemon juice.  Add 1 cup blueberries.  Bring to a boil.

In a small bowl, combine cornstarch with the 3 tablespoons water and stir until well dissolved.  Stir into saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until mixture thickens.  Add remaining blueberries and cook until just warm.
