Freezer Raspberry Sauce

This is a great topping for ice cream, and—since it's thicker than sweetened berries—it's nice over sponge cake or shortcake, too. My family especially enjoys spreading with sour cream and plain yogurt over waffles. In fact, no one ever asks for maple syrup anymore! —Katie Koziolek, Hartland, Minnesota

    I have been making this recipe for so many years I've lost track. It is perfect anytime a fruit sauce is required. I often add other fresh or frozen fruit to it just before serving--blueberries, strawberries, blackberries. Once you discover this recipe it will be an annual favorite way to use up all those berries.

    I love this recipe. We have so many raspberries in our yard right now and am always looking for ideas. I am excited to try this sauce on the Taste of Home "Easy Morning Waffle Recipe" (which really are easy!) for our B&B guests this weekend.
