Balsamic Blackberry Sauce

IMG_8482

Here is the easiest “fancy” sauce you will ever make.  I never understand why sauce recipes that use fruit call for more sugar – that’s already the biggest macronutrient present in the fruit itself!  There is no added sugar in this baby, making it a great recipe to include any time – even if you’re a Whole 30-er.  This no-brainer sauce can be used in a variety of ways, such as a topping to my Venison Thigh and Caramelized Veggies or a perfect compliment to leafy greens as a salad dressing replacement.

Balsamic Blackberry Sauce

Prep time: 2 minutes   Cook time: 3 minutes   Total time: 5 minutes

Yield: About 1 1/2 cups

 

Ingredients

12 oz fresh organic blackberries

2 tsp balsamic vinegar

THAT’S IT!

 

Directions

1.  Mash up blackberries with a fork in a mixing bowl.

2.  Once they are as creamy or chunky as you’d like, stir in the balsamic vinegar so it is evenly distributed.

3.  Pour sauce into a small pot and cook on low heat.  It will begin to sizzle very quickly, so you will need to be stirring almost constantly.

4.  The berries will begin to soften more as their heat continues to rise, so as soon as they have reached your desired consistency, take them off of the heat and serve warm.
