A simple technique - similar to jam-making but quicker and less sugar - the idea is to have nice chunks of fruit remain and to preserve the flavor of the fruit, in this case strawberries and blueberries.
1 pint strawberries cleaned and quartered 1 cup blueberries washed 2 tablespoons sugar could also use honey, maple syrup, agave nectar, etc zest of 1/2 of a medium lemon 1 tablespoon juice from the lemon 1 tsp vanilla 1 tsp maple syrup
Combine all the ingredients in a medium size saucepan and bring to a boil on medium heat. This should take about 5 minutes.
Turn down to medium low and let slowly simmer/boil for about 10 more minutes until the fruit is starting to break down but is still whole.
Take off heat and let it cool down a bit before using. It will thicken up a bit as it does.
