This summer pregnancy is bringing on all kinds of cravings and this Blackberry Basil Sauce hits the spot in the tart sweet department! By using ingredients found in my pantry & garden I was able to whip up my new summer favorite. Chilled and poured over waffles...
or a bowl of vanilla ice cream...
I can't get enough!
1 Pint Blackberries
1/3 cup of water
1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 - 3 tbsp Sugar (to taste)
3 - 5 leaves fresh Basil
In a saucepan over medium high heat bring all ingredients to a light boil, then turn the heat down and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and puree all in blender or food processor. Chill, pour, enjoy!
With most of my recipes I use ingredients I have on hand ~ I highly suggest adding a squeeze of lemon to this sauce prior to chilling (I was out when I originally made this). Also, if you don't have basil, mint would be a great substitute!
