What Can You Do With A Triple Berry Sauce?

Naturally, this sauce makes an exceptional addition to any cheesecake. We absolutely love it with creamier ones like a New York cheesecake or a Philadelphia cheesecake. And even more so when it is white chocolate flavored vanilla or caramel.

However, despite this sauce being perfect for cheesecake, you can also serve it with a wide variety of baked goods. It makes a fantastic filling for cupcakes and pastries! And, you can even serve it alongside a scone or on some refreshing ice cream.

What You Will Need To Make A Triple Berry Sauce For Cheesecake

Ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh raspberries
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup caster (fine) sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Pinch of salt

Equipment

  • Medium saucepan
  • Spoon
  • Blender or food processor
  • Glass jar for storage

How To Make This Berry Topping For Cheesecake

Step 1: Simmer the Berries

In a medium-sized saucepan, combine 1/2 cup fresh raspberries, 1/2 cup sliced strawberries, and 1/2 cup blueberries. Add the castor sugar and lemon juice and give the mixture a stir.

Then, over low to medium heat, bring the berries to a slow simmer. Give them a final stir and allow them to cook for roughly 10 minutes, or until all of the sugar has been dissolved.

The berries should be soft, but not disintegrated.

Step 2: Adjust the Sugar Levels

Our recipe doesn’t contain a ton of sugar. So, if you feel like adding some more, now would be the time to do so.

But, do so one tablespoon at a time. If you don’t have the biggest sweet tooth you don’t want to over-sweeten the mixture.

Once you have added the additional sugar, you will need to continue cooking the berries until it too has been completely dissolved.

Step 3: Puree the Berry Mixture

Once you have happy with the sugar level, you can continue cooking the berry mixture until the berries are completely soft.

Then, allow the mixture to cool slightly before blending it. You can also use a food processor. Then, blend until the mixture is smooth.

Step 4: Add The Remaining Berries And Cook The Mixture

Add the pureed berries back into the saucepan. Finally, add the rest of the raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries to the pureed mixture.

Bring the berries back to a simmer and cook until the berries become soft. You can mash them lightly with a fork or keep them whole.

Storing This Triple Berry Sauce For Cheesecake In A Fridge

This sauce is very easy to store. You can either serve it hot or cold.

When storing it, you have to allow it to cool down completely first. Then, once cooled, you can place it inside of a clean and sterilized glass jar.

We highly recommend boiling your jar before storing your mixed berry sauce inside, as it will kill any potential bacteria that can grow. This will help extend the shelf life of the sauce and help preserve the flavor for longer.

You can keep the berry compote inside of the fridge for at least a week. Make sure your fridge doesn’t have any fluctuating temperatures to prevent any deterioration.

Tips And Tricks For Making This Berry Compote For Cheesecake

  • If you cannot get your hands on fresh berries, you can also use frozen ones. They work equally well and you don’t even have to defrost them before cooking them. You may just want to cook them for slightly longer to make your mixed berry sauce thicker.
  • You can easily adjust the sweetness by adding or removing the sugar in the recipe. Personally, we love this triple berry sauce for the cheesecake because it works with a wide variety of flavor profiles.
  • Some fantastic sugar substitutes you can use are honey (which is all-natural), xylitol, or erythritol.  However, there are loads of other alternatives you can look at here.
  • You can adjust the consistency of this berry compote for cheesecake by adding a bit of water. Only add a tablespoon at a time and mix it in thoroughly before adding another. And, if you accidentally made it too thin, you can continue simmering it to allow the excess moisture to evaporate.
  • If you want to thicken the sauce a lot, we would recommend adding making a slurry of equal parts cornstarch and water. This, whisk the slurry into the berry sauce and bring it to a boil. Once boiling, your sauce should thicken as it cools down.

Can You Freeze This Mixed Berry Sauce?

Believe it or not, you can actually freeze this sauce! It actually is one of the few dessert sauces that freezes well.

To freeze it, again, make sure that it has been completely cooled before placing it inside of a container. We actually recommend portioning it (if you are making a large batch of sauce).

It is also much easier to store the sauce inside of a resealable zip-lock bag. This makes it easy to freeze the sauce on a tray so that it can stack nicely inside the freezer. Furthermore, these bags (that are freezer safe) are free of any stains and odors, so they won’t affect your berry sauce at all.

And, when you are ready to use your triple berry sauce for cheesecake, you can simply defrost it inside of a fridge overnight, or even inside of a saucepan immediately.
