Four Berry Sauce

October 27, 2010

When I see these four berries in the market at the same time (plus being on sale) I know what dessert will be that night, that is if they make it to the pan.  Just plain berries in a bowl are definitely a high priority here but this sauce is something special whether it is served warm or cold.  I have never done any canning in my life but the flavor of this sauce might make me reconsider as I would love to have this ready for fresh bread in the morning.  It is also the week of “Mad Stash” for #FallFest and since I really do not do any canning, preserving or freezing for the winter here in South Florida.  My way of preserving really only lasts a few weeks except in the case of broths and that is always ongoing.
