Sweet Berry Wine Sauce

I keep this lovely sauce in my refrigerator during the summer months. I think of it as a secret weapon and use it to turn the simplest of desserts into something really special. I keep a supply of vanilla ice cream in the freezer, and when it's topped with this gorgeous sauce I know I have a treat that can be served to unexpected guests without fuss or bother. It's very easy to make and, despite its simplicity, it has been well-received ever since its publication in Light and Tasty Magazine. I hope you'll give this sauce a try. I'm really proud of it. Here's the recipe.

Sweet Berry Wine Sauce...from the kitchen of One Perfect Bite


1 cup water

1/2 to 1 cup sugar

2 cups frozen unsweetened mixed berries

1/2 cup port wine or grape juice

Optional garnish:

1/2 cup fresh raspberries

1/2 cup fresh blackberries

1/2 cup fresh blueberries


Bring water and sugar to a boil. Add frozen berries and wine or juice; return to a boil. Reduce heat, simmer, uncovered for 5 minutes. Mash and strain berries, reserving juice. Return juice to pan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until mixture is reduced to 3/4 cup. Cool to room temperature. If using, stir fresh berries into sauce just before serving. Chill.
