If you have any berries in the freezer, such as blackberries, strawberries, raspberries and blueberries, this is a great way of using them up.
- 400g mixed berries
- 75g caster sugar
- 1 squeeze lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon water
- Add all the ingredients to a pot and bring to the boil. Allow to simmer for 15 minutes until the mixture becomes syrupy, but the fruit is still intact.
- Serve over pancakes with some crème fraîche, Greek yoghurt or mascarpone mixed with a bit of vanilla paste or extract.
