This is truly one of our most requested and enjoyed recipes. It is a simple “year round” favourite for our family and we are sure it will be for yours.


  1. Stir sugar into fruit in a large bowl, let stand 15 minutes
  2. Sprinkle Gelling Powder into fruit mixture slowly while stirring, let stand 5 minutes.
  3. Stir again for 1 minute; pour into sterilized containers with tight seals.
  4. Serve with ice cream. Don’t be afraid to be generous with the sauce, we never are.
  5. Freeze the remaining sauce. (Reusable plastic tubs work well – leave 1” of space to expand when frozen) or place in refrigerator.
  • Will store for up to 1 year in the freezer or 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
  • A great way to freeze your berries when you are tight on space; one that can be pulled out quickly and easily for many uses. Remember to freeze in portions suitable for a variety of purposes.
  • Great in milkshakes, as waffle, crepe or pancake topping, for banana splits and daiquiri’s, parfaits, great filling for fruit tarts, a great change from cherry sauce in your black forest cake and much more. Just use your imagination!
