Leftover sauce would be best if used within about a week.  It could be re-heated but it will not freeze well because of the cornstarch.  If you need a smaller batch, half the recipe makes a generous cup of sauce - and takes less berries!  Here's the ingredient amounts for half the recipe:

2 Tablespoons + 2 teaspoons sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch

2 Tablespoons cold water

2 cups berries

Follow the directions above.

SO GOOD!  Only made half a recipe and still enough for leftovers.  We put it on the Food Hero Gingerbread Pancakes, everyone LOVED it!  http://foodhero.org/recipes/gingerbread-pancakes.

Update - keep making this again and again, the kids just love it!  Top it on pancakes and homeade rolled oats in the morning.  We had been using blueberries, and tried strawberries today which were also amazing!
