This was delicious! I used cranberry juice and blueberries and reduced the maple syrup to half the amount. Also I used mace instead of nutmeg. I'll make this again, it's so easy and tasty! Thanks for posting.

Yummy! I served this like warm grits and used frozen strawberries which I microwaved (to thaw) and thereby creating it's own juice. I made half the recipe and got about 3 cups from it, which made 2 servings. This is delicious and quick to make. It only took about 5 minutes to thicken. I only used half the maple syrup called for and sprinkled a bit of sugar and added more berries just before serving. Very unique, and very delicious, this would make a great fruit dip also!

This is an interesting recipe & the dessert is tasty, though totally different from what I'm used to, which is probably the main reason I enjoyed making it! I used a blueberry/cranberry juice & the berries were blueberry! We had it warm & later chilled, & I think I prefer it chilled! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Newest Zaar Tag]
