Mixed Berry Fruit Filling

Using three different types of berries will add a special texture and flavor depth that's just not possible with one. Be sure to use frozen berries if making a filling with tender berries or add them at the very end of the cooking process.
  • 2 T. honey
  • 2/3 c. hulled and quartered strawberries
  • 2/3 c. blackberries -- I use frozen berries
  • 2/3 c. blueberries -- Use firm berries or opt for frozen
  • 2 T. amaretto
  • 2 T. pineapple juice
  • 2 tsp. cornstarch

Heat the honey over medium heat in a nonstick skillet. Add the prepared fruit and mix to coat with the honey. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the frozen fruit softens slightly, about 3 minutes. If using some tender berries, add them to the mixture during the last minute of cooking time.

Meanwhile, in a small dish, combine the amaretto, fruit juice and cornstarch and mix until no lumps remain. Add the mixture to the hot skillet and mix until the liquid bubbles and thickens. Remove from the heat and place in a small baking dish, if it's to be used as a filling for a crisp or cobbler.
