- 1/4 - 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 3 Tablespoons orange juice
- 2 cups frozen mixed berries
- 1 pint fresh strawberries quartered
In a 1/2-quart saucepan, stir together sugar and cornstarch. Stir in orange juice until blended smooth. Stir in frozen berries and bring to a boil over medium heat. Make sure to give it a stir occasionally. Once boiling, cook for 2-4 minutes, stirring constantly until slightly thickened. Remove from heat. Just before serving, stir in strawberries pieces. Serve over your favorite pancakes or french toast.
Sometimes berries are sweeter than others depending on the crop which means that sometimes you need a little sugar, and sometimes maybe a little more or less. Start with 1/4 cup sugar and taste your syrup before it boils. If it needs more you can either add the entire extra 1/4 cup or you can add it by the Tablespoon depending on how sweet you want it.
