  1. Sauté minced shallots in olive oil until soft.
  2. Add port and simmer 5 minutes.
  3. Add fresh berries (reserving a few for garnish) and demi glace, simmering and smashing with a fork for about 10 minutes.
  4. Balance acidity with brown sugar or honey.
  5. When sauce tastes rich and thick, strain and reserve.

For a creamier sauce, whisk in 1 tablespoon of fat free sour cream into cooled sauce. Serve at room temperature.
