Add butter, garlic and fresh thyme, spoon butter on top of the pork. Once you have coated both sides with the butter finish cooking in the oven until internal temp reaches 145 degrees.

In a medium saucepan add all of the wild blueberry sauce ingredients and cook until thickened – about 8 to 10 minutes.
