Paul, my husband and Pomona’s business partner, just had a Big Birthday. We decided to celebrate by getting sauced — low-sweetener fruit sauced that is!

We invited some friends over for a tasting party — cake, ice cream, and 8 different low-sweetener fruit sauces made with Pomona’s Pectin. They were so good, everyone wanted to to take some home. Luckily, we had plenty to share.

The inspiration to make fruit sauces came from a Pomona’s customer who told me about sauces she makes for her husband’s ice cream — Blackberry Marsala Sauce, Ginger Peach sauce, Strawberry Sauce, punched up with a little Strawberry Pucker, and more. So I made sauces from our Plum Special Jam recipe and from our Pineapple-Strawberry Jam recipe, among others.

The sad part of the story — we were so excited about the sauces and the birthday, we forgot to take pictures. Sigh . . .  But then we took a few with the leftovers.
