Fresh Berry Sauce

This makes more than enough for a pancake breakfast for 12. Surprisingly, and sadly, most people only drizzle like 2 tablespoons on their breakfast! Still worth making for that special breakfast/brunch. If you wanna makes sure people eat it (because it's really quite good) plate it on the pancakes before you serve it. I can also imagine this would be great with pound cake or any even a chocolate cake.
2 C fresh berries
1/2 C water
1 C orange juice
½ C sugar
¼ C ice cold water
3 T cornstarch
¼ tsp almond extract
¼ tsp cinnamon
In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the blueberries, 1/4 cup of water, orange juice, and sugar. Stir gently, and bring to a boil.

In a cup or small bowl, mix together the cornstarch and 1/4 cup cold water. Gently stir the cornstarch mixture into the blueberries so as not to mash the berries. Simmer gently until thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the almond extract and cinnamon. Thin sauce with water if it is too thick for your liking.
