Berry sauce is wonderful over peach pie, cheesecake, ice cream or cake. And it's so easy to make. You can use whatever berries you like, or you can mix them like I did. I had some frozen strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and raspberries, so I just threw them all in the pot. This is absolutely delicious and is easy to pour whether it's room temperature or cold. Don't be afraid to try this.

Berry Sauce
1/3 cup seedless raspberry jam (or other jam of your choice)
1 cup frozen or fresh berries of choice
1 tsp. cornstarch
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. rum (optional, but nice)

Place all ingredients except rum in small saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir and cook for about 3 minutes, then remove from heat and press through a sieve so that seeds are removed. This will take a few minutes. Of course, if seeds don't bother you, then skip this step and have a chunky sauce. Stir rum into finished sauce. Serve room temperature or cold.
