That dream involved Prosecco. And ginger ale. And blackberry nectar.

I love nectars. Strawberry, mango, peach, all delicious. But my dream was dashed when I learned there was no such thing as blackberry nectar. Why is there no blackberry nectar? Strawberry nectar exists.

That left me revamping my recipe. I’d make my own blackberry something. It’s not a coulis because I didn’t heat it. It’s not a puree because I added water. For the sake of titles, I went bland and titled it ‘sauce.’ Blackberry Sauce ~ Pureed blackberries with lemon juice and sugar thinned with water making a sweet sauce that can be used over ice cream, in cocktails, and pancakes; the possibilities are endless ~ The Complete Savorist Now since I can’t make anything in small quantities, I knew I was going to need to find other uses outside the cocktail. Turns out eating it with a spoon is a really great way to use it up. But don’t worry, I have a few plans for this bad boy after I make my cocktail. Until then, it’s chilling out in the freezer. After I realized I had to make a few other recipes with it, the sauce rightly deserved its own post instead of just adding it to the cocktail post. But that cocktail is coming really soon.

I do recommended after pureeing it all in the food processor that you push it through a fine metal sieve. I like seeds and don’t mind them in my drinks or foods, but there is a reason most blackberry products are seedless; countless little buggers.  Blackberry Sauce ~ Pureed blackberries with lemon juice and sugar thinned with water making a sweet sauce that can be used over ice cream, in cocktails, and pancakes; the possibilities are endless ~ The Complete Savorist

    I have the same affliction that you have regarding not being able to make anything in small batches. LOL. It’s a blessing as well as a curse. This blackberry sauce looks heavenly. I could see using it in a multitude of ways!
