Berry Delicious Sauce

Fresh berries are naturally delicious and healthy.   All too often, some remain after the initial feasting and begin to wither. Use those berries to make a sauce for the food of the gods, Greek yogurt.  Add granola to the mix for a parfait.

Berry Delicious Sauce


1 cup berries (whole blueberries or diced strawberries)
1/4 cup cane sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 tsp. citric acid
1 tablespoon water
1 sprinkle iodized salt


In a small sauce pan, place all the ingredients, turn up the heat to medium, bring to a simmer, and cook until you see "foam."  Continue to simmer for about 20 minutes until the fruit becomes more candy-colored and smooth.

Remove the pan from heat.  Careful!  It's hot.

Place the cooled sauce in a covered glass container or jar, and store in the refrigerator.

Calories:  about 50 per tablespoon.

(I've used diced peaches or diced cherries instead of berries.)
