Turn fresh or frozen blackberry into a delicious sauce to top cakes, ice cream, cheesecake and more! This sauce has a great balance of sweet and tart and comes together easily with very few ingredients.

     This easy to make blackberry sauce has that great balance of sweet and tart. There is a hint of lemon, plenty of berries.  It cooks up quickly with very little effort and is perfect drizzled over so many things. It is great for making blackberry shortcake as well!

    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

  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!
