One great thing about summer is the fresh produce and juicy fruit. Turn some ripe blackberries into sauce and spoon it over ice cream, into cocktails or just scoop it directly into your mouth.


2 ½ tsp. cornstarch
3 ½ Tbsp. sugar
1/3 cup water
12 ounces fresh blackberries


In a sauce pan over medium high, combine cornstarch, sugar, water and blackberries. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, stir well and squish the blackberries a bit, releasing the juices. Boil for 5 minutes then remove from heat. Pour the mixture over a fine mesh strainer set over a bowl and push through, discarding the pulp. Transfer the sauce to a jar and keep refrigerated.

Makes approximately 1 cup of sauce
