Blackberry Lime Sauce

on May 3, 2013

I decided to make a special breakfast this morning after I saw a few blackberries sitting in the refrigerator and immediately felt the need to have them with pancakes. I cooked them down with some lime juice, water, and just a tad of agave to create a pourable sauce. I’m sure the sauce would also be delicious spread on some toast, stirred into some greek yogurt, or poured over some vanilla ice cream. In fact, I’m quite sure it would be delicious poured over some vanilla ice cream. Don’t have any blackberries sitting around? Try another berry – any type would work.

BLACKBERRY LIME SAUCE

  • 1 cup blackberries
  • juice of 1 lime
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 T agave (more if your berries aren’t sweet enough, less if your berries are super sweet)

Rinse your berries and juice your lime.

Add the berries and lime juice to a pot, smashing the berries with a fork as they warm up.

Simmer the berries until they completely break down and the sauce begins to thicken up. Taste and add agave. My berries were pretty sweet, so I didn’t need much.

Continue to simmer until the sauce is thick, then add water to thin it a bit.

Bring back up to a boil, then simmer for just another minute or two until the sauce has thickened up just a bit again. You don’t want it to be too thick – more of a pourable consistency.

Pour it over some pancakes… soooo good!

Or, let the sauce cool, then refrigerate. It should keep in the refrigerator for a couple days, although we didn’t have any left over. My kids begged me to make more!
