  • 4 cups mixed berries (slice larger ones)
  • 1/2 cup sugar


  1. Combine berries with sugar. Stir occasionally for 45 minutes, and watch as they transform into a vibrant, juicy sauce. Serve over ice cream, pancakes, or shortcake. For a float, alternate the berries with scoops of ice cream and top it all off with seltzer.

    Are you supposed to be stirring the berries while they are heating on the stove?
