Easy Blackberry Sauce


    This sauce works great with fresh berries as well as frozen.  We get gallons of blackberries off our bushes each year.  We use a bunch during the summer and freeze the rest for sweet treats during the year.  I used some frozen berries to make the sauce for Donna's cheesecake and fresh berries when I made it for the blackberry shortcake cake.  




    It would also be great over some vanilla ice cream or some pancakes



Easy Blackberry Sauce


Ingredients:

3 cup blackberries (fresh or frozen work)
2 T lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 T corn starch (give or take depending on how thick you want it)
2 T water

  1. In a saucepan, heat the berries, lemon juice and sugar over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until it starts to bubble.
  2. Stir together corn starch and water.  Pour slurry into berries and stir until it comes back to a bubble.  Remove from heat and let cool.

  2. Wow! That sauce looks amazing. My husband used to work for a chef who used to prepare a similar sauce but with blueberries. Then, he used it as a hamburger garnish.

    1. Memories of cooking with mom and gran are the best!

      I love being able to make delicious treats from produce that is grown right in our backyard. My son's current favorite book is If You Give a Moose a Muffin and the kid's mom in that book makes blackberry jam. I couldn't help but think of that when you mentioned the jam. Maybe the little guy and I need to make some blackberry jam together too!

    1. Yum! I am envious of all of your Black and Blue jam! I still have some blackberries in the freezer. I like to make at least one pie a year from the berries, but I don't always feel like making it in the heat of summer. It will be fun to pull them out one cool day and have something to look forward to!
