Blackberry Sage Sauce

One of my favorite teas is Republic of Tea's Blackberry Sage.  I love this combination of flavors.  I had some blackberries and sage in the refrigerator and decided to make a sauce with them.  Not only is it fantastic on pancakes, it is also great over ice cream and even savory dishes like grilled chicken breasts or grilled pork chops.  I love sauces that can be used in many dishes.
















Blackberry Sage Sauce 

4 1/2 to 5 cups fresh blackberries
1 1/2 cup sugar (you can use a little less or a little more; to your liking)
2 1/2 tablespoons fresh sage, minced
2 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Place all ingredients in a large saucepan and on medium high heat bring to a boil; stirring occasionally.  Boil for 10 minutes until it has started to thicken.  Crush some of the berries with a potato masher or the back of your spoon.  Place in a bowl, I like to put it in the freezer for 10 minutes; then put on the counter to come to room temperature. Place in jars and keep refrigerated; use within 2 weeks.
