This is my go-to berry sauce recipe! There are so many variations that you can do with this! I have added maple extract to this and it turns out with a great little twist. You can also add butter to it, and make it a THM-S.
Although I haven’t tried it yet, I am sure you can add collagen too and make it even better for you!
I usually use frozen berries, but you can use fresh as well.
(Note: If you do use fresh, it will cook faster.)
I love the chunky berries in this, but if you prefer smooth syrup, you can easily blend in the blender and then serve it smooth.
I love these pictures because this beautiful white server that I use for the berry sauce was grandmother Josie’s. It’s actually a gravy server, but I like using it for the sauce. It is very near and dear to me, and I feel that when I use it in my pictures and at my table for serving, that her memory lives on. She was an awesome woman. She served everyone with such grace, and was always so kind to me. I wish I knew her better, but she died when I was young. My favorite aunt gave this gravy server to me, and I will cherish it because it was used by my grandma and my aunt.
Maybe I am getting sentimental in my “old age”, but I actually kind of like old dishes. Especially white ones! I have a love for white dishes of any kind! I think I am starting to appreciate the character in the old ones. Maybe someday I will have some of my grandmas dishes, my moms dishes and some of my own to pass down to my daughter. 🙂
