Last weekend I made it and we poured it over waffles. I will put that recipe up tomorrow! You should just plan on having an amazing Sunday morning breakfast. Invite friends over, or just enjoy whoever is in your house. It is a great way to welcome in the day!
2 cups berries: raspberries, black berries, and/or blue berries
1/2 cup fresh raspberries
2 tablespoons white sugar
1/3 cup water
Put two cups of berries in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of white sugar over the top and mix it in. Add 1/3 cup of water.
As the berries are cooking stir the sauce occasionally. You want to smash some of the berries to release the juice and make it more of a liquid versus a solid. It is nice to the punch of a berry here and there.
Boil the mixture to thicken it, add a bit of foaminess, and really enhance the flavor. The time it cooks will depend on what you want the final product to be. Take a look at the pictures above. For the waffles sauce I only boiled the berry sauce for 5-6 minutes. I still wanted chunks of berries. I had blue berries in the mixture so it was a dark, deep color. For the sauce on the lava cakes I wanted it more smooth without any chunks. I boiled this for 10 to 12 minutes. I only used raspberries so it would have a bright pink color. I mashed the berries thoroughly which produced a smooth, thick sauce.
Pour it into a cute little sauce pitcher and off you go! Put some fresh berries out as well to accompany the sauce, or add them to the plate before serving. This gives it a fresh organic feeling, with the deep flavor of the sauce.
