 This easy to make blackberry sauce has that great balance of sweet and tart. There is a hint of lemon, plenty of berries.  It cooks up quickly with very little effort and is perfect drizzled over so many things. It is great for making blackberry shortcake as well!

This sauce works great with fresh berries as well as frozen.  We get gallons of blackberries off our bushes each year.

We use a bunch during the summer and freeze the rest for sweet treats during the year.  I used some frozen berries to make the sauce for Donna’s cheesecake and fresh berries when I made it for the blackberry shortcake cake.

It would also be great over some vanilla ice cream or some pancakes.
