Roasted Blackberry Sauce

I was in Costco the other day and they had fresh blackberries.  Blackberries are very good for you.  They are high in dietary fiber, Vitamins C and K, folic acid, manganese, and potassium.  Blackberries also rank high in antioxidant strength.

I decided to make  Roasted Blackberry Sauce with the berries.  I  especially like the flavor of the fruit when it's roasted.  Roasting concentrates the flavor.   The colors are also so deep.  I think this makes the fruit look more inviting.

Roasted Blackberry Sauce is a delicious and versatile sauce I have been making for awhile.  You can pour it over ice cream or frozen yogurt, spread it on french toast, pancakes, or waffles. You can also use it as a filling for Puff Pancakes and crepes.

 Roasted Blackberry Sauce


2 cups fresh blackberries
1-tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
1-teaspoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons butter

Sauce From The Oven

1. Place the blackberries, balsamic vinegar, sugar and cornstarch in a mixing bowl.  Stir gently until combined well.
2. Let  blackberry mixture sit at room temperature for 25 minutes
3.Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
4. Place the  butter in an 8x8-baking dish and put it in the oven for about 4 minutes or until butter is melted.  Remove the pan from the oven and set aside.
5.Place berries in the prepared baking dish and roast in the oven for 25 minutes.
6. Remove from the oven and let the sauce cool.
7. Refrigerate if you are not going to use the sauce right away.
8.  Sauce is best when served warm.
