This light fruit dessert is delicious when eaten as is. It can also be used to dress up other simple desserts. It makes a great topping for vanilla or lemon pudding, pies, or tarts with a vanilla pudding base, and shortcake, pancakes and waffles. This fruit sauce is a scrumptious filling for crepes. Refrigerated in a covered container, it will keep for several days.
*Delicate, tender fruits such as strawberries and raspberries should not be cooked. Firmer fruits such as blueberries, cherries, and apples should be simmered with the juice.
