  • 2 teaspoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice, strained
  • 1/2 pint fresh blueberries, washed and picked over
  • 1/2 pint fresh raspberries
  • 1/2 pint fresh blackberries
  • 1 pint fresh strawberries, washed, hulled, and cut in half


  1. In a medium saute pan over medium heat, melt butter. Add sugar and orange juice; cook until sugar begins to dissolve, about 2 minutes.

  2. Add blueberries and cook until they begin to release juice, about 1 minute. Add raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries and cook until soft and ready to burst, about 2 minutes, depending on ripeness. Shake pan gently or use a rubber spatula to stir carefully (do not crush berries). Serve immediately.
