Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Red Wine
  • 1 Cup Granulated White Sugar
  • 12 oz. Fresh Blackberries, Divided
  • 12 oz. Fresh Raspberries, Divided

Instructions

  • In a medium saucepan mix together red wine and sugar.
  • Bring to a boil over medium heat stirring constantly. Reduce heat to a low simmer and add ½ of the blackberries and ½ of the raspberries. Set aside the remaining berries for later.
  • Allow to simmer for approximately 30 minutes. Midway through the simmering time, use a potato masher to crush the berries in the sauce and skim foam as needed. Sauce is ready when it is slightly thickened and coats the back of a spoon.
  • Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature. Transfer to a glass bowl or container and refrigerate.
  • Remove from refrigerator and add remaining berries. Stir very gently to combine and allow sauce to come to room temperature before serving.
  • Serve over vanilla ice cream, pound cake, angel food cake, or brie cheese.

Recipe Notes

•  Please do not use a “cooking wine”. Use a wine that you enjoy drinking for this recipe. A fruit forward red wine such as Merlot, Malbec, Bordeaux Blends, and Clarets are excellent choices.
•  This sauce will keep in the refrigerator for 1 week.
•  For best results, portion out the amount of sauce you need and add fresh berries to that portion.
