We miss fresh berries in Hawaii. You can get them, but they cost a fortune. So, I have resorted to buying frozen berries from Costco, which are delicious. I originally made this recipe over father's day, when I made my husband pancakes with berry sauce. He loved it. This sauce is not too sweet, but just right. My new favorite thing to do it make this sauce up, store it in the fridge and add it on top of my Greek yogurt, it is super good! This sauce could go on top of cheesecake, waffles, ice cream, angel food cake, pancakes, yogurt, and probably many other things. You can use any type of frozen berry for this recipe.
Mixed Berry Sauce
2 c frozen berries
1/3 c sugar
1 tbs lemon juice
zest of one lemon
pinch of salt
1 tbs cornstarch
Combine all ingredients into a medium pot. Set heat to medium high heat. Bring mixture to a boil until desired thickness. Enjoy!
Thank you Rachel Ray for this amazing recipe. I loved the flavors in this dish. I'm always looking for something easy but interesting in a recipe. I modified the original recipe just a bit to suit my taste. The original recipe called for a cup of basil, which I did not have. I left it out, and didn't even miss it. But by all means, if you have an abundance of basil try it! This was super yummy and something special to make!
