Over the summer we picked a couple pounds of blackerries and blueberries and froze most of them so that we could always have fresh berries during the year. Now that the fall is here we decided to take some out of the freezer and make a dessert sauce. We have made berry sauces before but this time we wanted a creamier texture so we added a corn starch slurry to the berries as they cooked.

We started by adding 2 cups of blackberries to a 2 quart sauce pot and then adding the 1/2 cup of sugar. The trick to making a great sauce is time. It takes a while for the berries to boil and reduce to a syrupy texture. After they boiled for a while we added the corn starch slurry.berry sauce

The result was excellent. This was the best berry sauce we ever made. It was very easy and made the vanilla ice cream that much better.
