Blackberry Sauce

I saw a lovely box of blackberries the other day at Sams and had to have them.

I took them home, washed em, ate a few (commenting on how good they were), and put them in the fridge.

There they sat, for 4 days, until I discovered them this morning. They needed used up or they were going to end up in the trash.

That's why I made this super simple sauce. 
It's a great way to use up berries that have been mistreated, I mean overlooked.

Doesn't this look good,,,,,,and your right, it really is scrumptious.

You can easily adjust the recipe depending on how much you have, 
 how sweet the berries are or how sweet you like your sauce.

2 cups of berries
3 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp water
pinch of salt
2 tbsp orange liqueur
Squeeze of fresh lemon juice

Simmer the berries, sugar, water and salt in a saucepan on low heat, until the berries break down. Taste to determine if it needs more sugar.

Blend the berry mixture and strain. Stir in the liqueur and lemon juice.

Enjoy as an ice cream topper or on waffles and pancakes. You could even reduce it with balsamic and use it as a sauce for pork or chicken.
