Fruit spreads

It should be remembered that, as wonderful as maple syrup is on one's pancakes, Kaiserschmarrn, or waffles, even the greatest lover of this natural sweetener needs a change once in a while.

To help, take about 1 tbsp of corn starch (or white flour) and mix it with 1/2 cup granulated sugar. Mix this in turn with about 1 cup of water, and pour the mixture over 1 pint of berries--strawberries, blueberries, whatever. Heat to a boil and stir as it thickens. Add lemon juice or spices to taste. Serve over your favorite breakfast breads, oatmeal, or grits.

Sounds very delicious but looks like a lot of work for a small breakfast:o) Breakfast is not one I enjoy sitting down with.

Wait until you're married with kids. :^)

Actually, it only takes about 10 minutes. Also, such a spread can certainly be used for other meals.
