Rated 3 out of 5 by ehridgeway from Nice change to the traditional. I made this for dinner tonight and served it with grilled pork loin chops. I used one 6oz. package of blackberries and one 6 oz package of red raspberries and went with 2/3 of the remaining ingredients. It made more than enough for the two of us, so the rest went into the freezer. I don't think I could have been as successful with just one package of berries with the 64 oz. container - just not enough volume. My one suggestion would be to brighten it up a little bit - perhaps with a little lemon or lime or possibly some aged balsamic. My husband and I like things on the sour side, and the addition might deliver the desired "pop".

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jaxjmm from Wonderfully Balanced Sauce Made this with a fresh quart of blackberries. Halved the recipe and it was enough for 2 meals for the two of us. Served as accompaniment to an Asian-style broiled pumfu (similar to tofu but made from pumpkin seeds, quinoa with fried daikon and steamed veggies. But would go well with just about any protein and or veggies.
