A super easy sauce great served on pound cake, yogurt, waffles, pancakes, biscuits, scones, ice cream and more!
2cupsfresh or frozen berries (slightly thawed if frozen)
1tablespoonfresh lemon juice
1/4 to 1/3cupgranulated sugar,or less to taste depending on the tartness of the fruit
1tablespoonscornstarch mixed with 2 tablespoons water
Place the clean dry berries in a deep medium saucepan. Add the lemon juice, sugar and salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Once the sauce boils, mash some of the berries with a fork but be sure to leave some whole for good texture. Slowly stir in about half of the cornstarch and water mixture, while stirring constantly. Add more of the cornstarch mixture if needed or until the sauce is as thick as you want. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the vanilla. Serve immediately and refrigerate leftovers. Easy peasy.
This sauce is great made with blackberries, raspberries, blueberries and strawberries, or use a combination if desired.
