This Easy Fruit Sauce Is a Delicious Way to Use Frozen Berries


This simple topping is delicious drizzled onto ice cream, spooned over oatmeal, stirred into yogurt, or poured over pancakes or waffles. It will keep for up to a week in the fridge or in the freezer for up to three months.


  • 1 10 to 16 oz. bag frozen berries or peaches

  • 2 to 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch


  1. Pour the frozen fruit into a medium-sized saucepan. Add the maple syrup, using 2 tablespoons for a 10-oz. bag of fruit and 3 tablespoons for a 16-oz. bag. Add the vanilla and salt.

  2. Place the pot over medium-high heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until the fruit is thawed, bubbling, and beginning to break down, 5 to 10 minutes. Whisk in the cornstarch and boil for a minute, continuing to whisk. The sauce should be glossy and slightly thickened. Serve, or pour into storage containers.
