a simple fruit sauce made with blackberries and blueberries with a tangy bite from the fresh lemon juice. With just a little sugar, this versatile sauce is great on just about everything!
- 1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
- 1 cup blackberries (fresh or frozen)
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice (about 2 lemons)
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a medium saucepan, combine the berries, water, sugar and lemon juice. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, then reduce to medium-low. Gently simmer the sauce, stirring frequently, until it thickens and reduces to about 1 cup, about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the butter and vanilla. Stir until the butter is melted. Serve the warm sauce spooned over plain Greek yogurt, ice cream, biscuits, pancakes, waffles or a simple Angel Food or Pound cake.
Refrigerate leftovers in a jar with a lid.
Don’t forget to PIN for later!
If you don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen but crave something fresh and sweet, fruit sauces are always a good choice!
