Happy Friday afternoon! It’s time for topping number two! Like the maple candied nuts, this recipe is also incredibly easy. And I have to admit I would probably mix it into my yogurt as well as topping my ice cream with it.
I used a bag of frozen mixed berries, because I happened to already have one, and freezer space has been at a premium this month. You could use any kind of berries you like, either fresh or frozen.
Mixed Berry Bourbon Sauce
1 10-ounce bag frozen berries
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons bourbon
– If using frozen berries, rinse in warm water to remove any ice crystals. Allow to drain.
– Combine berries and sugar in a medium saucepan. Heat over medium-high heat, stirring until the sugar melts and the mixture comes to a boil.
– Lower heat slightly and continue to cook the sauce for about 5 minutes. Stir occasionally.
– Stir in the 2 tablespoons of bourbon and remove from heat.
– Transfer to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator.
I think this is one of the prettiest toppings I’ve made:
Gather your ingredients.
The berries and sugar go into the pot.
Stir constantly while the sugar melts so nothing burns.
Bring the mixture to a boil. Right before you remove it from the heat add the bourbon if you want to include it.
I love all of the colors and textures in this sauce.
Here’s the final product:
This would also make a great swirl in vanilla ice cream. I might just have to try that next time.
What kind of berries would you put in your sauce?
