Brandied Berry Sauce

Use leftover berries and cherries to make this delicious brandied berry sauce. There is hardly anybody who spends a fair amount of time in the kitchen and doesn’t have to deal with leftovers. Leftovers don’t always mean like the lasagna or rice left from last night’s dinner. We buy a lot of canned stuff from the market these days; especially those cooks obsessed with desserts.

Often, we don’t use the entire contents of the can and we have to eventually discard them given the expiration date. However, this is not only a waste of food but money as well. Many people grow fresh produce in their gardens as well and after being plucked, it naturally starts losing its original freshness and nutritional value as well. Therefore, it is a great idea if you can combine the leftovers to make something new. It is quite possible if you have a creative mind and the skills for inventive cooking.

For example, a Greek omelette often takes its unique taste from leftovers. In this article from the Homespun Seasonal Living, the author describes how to use leftover sour pie cherries combined with strawberries and raspberries to create brandied cherry berry preserves. It is a great recipe using some additional everyday stuff found in the kitchen. This is delicious over ice cream. This is a great way to can up small batches of sauce with those berries that may be unwanted at the moment but that won’t keep long. You can put them away on your pantry shelf and really enjoy them in winter when there are no fresh berries.
