2. To prepare sauce, place berries in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Pour in the maple syrup, cover, and reduce to a simmer. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Turn the heat off, and stir in the vanilla. Serve over pancakes, ice cream, or yogurt. The sauce will keep for 3 days in the refrigerator.
