Four Berry Sauce

Four Berry Sauce with strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries
berry sauce with strawberries and raspberries
You can make this quick and easy Four Berry Sauce using any type of fresh berries. I prefer using a combination of different types of berries for colors, texture, and taste. Recently I helped my neighbor Inge make some using strawberries and blackberries to drizzle over a plain cheesecake. While visiting my in-laws over Christmas I made a sauce using strawberries and raspberries to drizzle over pancakes and ice cream. This recipe is a sauce made with multiple berries, especially for my husband to eat with plain yogurt for breakfast. You can adjust the amount of additional sugar based on how sweet the berries are already and your personal preference. This sauce may be refrigerated for up to a week.

Four Berry Sauce

Ingredients:

16 oz fresh strawberries
12 oz fresh blueberries
6 oz fresh blackberries
6 oz fresh raspberries
About 1/3 cup sugar
Cornstarch-Water Mixture (thickener): about 1 Tbsp of cornstarch and 1 Tbsp of water--mix well, optional

Method:

In a medium sized pot cook the strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and sugar in medium heat until the sugar dissolves and the berries are mildly soft (about 5-6 minutes). Add raspberries and cornstarch-water mixture to thicken the sauce. Stir and turn off heat. Keep the pot on the stove to cook further.

*I used 100% natural turbinado cane sugar in this recipe.


Taro Pancakes
Taro Pancakes (makes about 10-12 pancakes)

Ingredients:

1 1/4 cup whole milk
1 egg
1 cup Taro Pancake Mix
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder

Method:

Whisk the milk and egg together. Slowly whisk in all the dry ingredients. Lightly fry the pancakes in a little oil until golden brown.

*I used Hawaii's Taro Pancake mix (Taro Brand from Hawaii). The pancake mix calls for adding just water but I added a few extra ingredients.
*Add more milk if the batter is too thick and add more flour if the batter is too thin.

*Addendum:
I did not like the previous pancake recipe (above) but my husband thought they were fine. This time I made another batch of 8 pancakes and they were a lot softer. I used about 1 cup of Taro Pancake Mix. Add a few large spoonfuls of plain yogurt and enough milk and whisk everything until the batter is a little thinner than honey consistency
