Course: Fruit
Servings: 3 cups
Author: Barbara Schieving


  • 1 cup red raspberries
  • 1 cup blackberries
  • 2 cups frozen blueberries
  • 2 - 3 tablespoons granulated sugar add more to taste
  • Optional: dash lemon juice or lemon zest


  • Wash berries. Drain, but do not dry. Place into a microwave-safe bowl with the sugar and lemon juice or zest, if using.
  • Cover and microwave for 3-4 minutes, or until the berries have melted and the juice is at a low simmer.


Feel free to switch the types of berries, but the success of the dish depends on about ¾ of the berries being soft and juicy.
