Berry Dessert Sauce
12 ounce bag frozen unsweetened berries
(raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, or a mix of berries)
¾ cup sugar
½ cup water
½ teaspoon vanilla
3 teaspoons cornstarch
3 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon butter
In a saucepan over medium heat, stir together the frozen berries, sugar and water.
Once the sugar has dissolved, raise the heat to high and bring the mixture to a boil, stirring often.
Lower the heat to medium-low and stir in the vanilla.
In a small cup, combine the cornstarch and three tablespoons of water. Stir and boil over medium-low heat for four minutes or until the mixtures has thickened. Remove the pan from the heat.
Add the butter and mix until it has completely melted.
Allow the mixture to cool for fifteen minutes. Press the berry sauce through a fine mesh strainer to remove the seeds.
