It’s a wonderful time of year. Berries are in season! Here’s a recipe for a delicious mixed berry sauce that uses raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, and strawberries – I’d argue that it’s the only berry sauce you’ll ever need. You need four cups berries total, so you can use any combination you like. Stir it into yogurt, use it to make parfaits, or spoon it over ice cream, waffles, and pancakes. It’s so good I’ve been eating it by the spoonful on its own!
Mixed Berry Sauce
Makes about 1 quart
1 cup each: raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, and sliced strawberries
6 tablespoons agave
1 teaspoon orange zest
2 tablespoons cornstarch dissolved in 1 tablespoon water
Bring berries, agave, zest, and 1/2 cup water in a small Dutch oven. When mixture starts to simmer, whisk in cornstarch mixture. Continue to simmer until mixture thickens to sauce consistency. Let stand and serve warm as a sauce for pancakes or waffles or refrigerate and serve chilled over ice cream or yogurt.
