Amazing on top of your favorite pancakes or waffles. This sauce doesn't thicken up much because there is no white sugar, but it does soak wonderfully into warm pancakes.

This turned out really great! I needed a recipe that did not include sugar or orange juice and this was perfect. No need for salt. Mine turned out a little extra runny so next time I will probably opt for a 1/4 cup rather than a 1/3 cup of water. Read More

Fantastic. The only thing I changed was decreasing the water to 1/4 cup as others suggested. I will definitely use this recipe again. Read More

Delicious! The sauce thickened as it cooled. I served it over German Puff pancakes. It was a big hit. Read More

This worked out perfectly; not too sweet, not too tart. I used it right away (still warm) on pancakes and put the rest in the fridge. It thickened a bit after a day or two, so I used it on toast. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

I had a bunch of blueberries that I needed to use, and I wanted a sauce to serve over grilled peaches with vanilla ice cream. I used 2 cups of blueberries, 1 tbsp. honey, about 2 tbsp. lemon juice and 3 tbsp. I skipped the salt. While cooking it, I thought it needed a little more sweet, so I added about a tbsp. of sugar. It tasted yummy as is, but once I turned off the heat, I threw in about a 1/2 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips! It sat on the stove while we had dinner, and I reheated for dessert. I made the "MMM...MMM Better Brownies" also from this site to serve with the peaches and ice cream. It was a HUGE hit! Read More

This sauce was pretty good. I didn't add any salt and just added a splash of water. It thickened after I removed it from the heat. Poured it over a lemon yogart pound cake. Read More
