Absolutely agree with mOuse, choc chips work really well. I do avoid any that are sort of grainy when you eat them though and some of the really inexpensive ones can do that. "Real" cooks will say that the better the chocolate the better the ganache however most of us don't have that option, so choc chips it is! I have used baking chocolate and it is smooth but most people would never know.

Ganache away baby!

And yes, I got my chocolate fix...leftover chocolate cake with homemade strawberry filling.....mmmmmmm......heym do you hear that? It's calling me again!

Let me see if I can remember it...
4 cups of fruit
Put 3 in a heavy saucepan and reserve 1 cup.
Add 1/2 to 1 cup of sugar. Decide on how sweet your fruit is.
Bring to a boil.
Dissolve about 4 tblsp of cornstarch in cold water so that it resembles cream. Add it in a steady stream to the hot fruit mixture being sure to stir all the while.
Return to boil until mixture is glossy and sort of clear. Remove from heat and add remaining cup of fruit. Stir together. It should look like jam. Voila!

Personally I don't reserve any berries, I just put it all in and go. I've made 2 batches and I must say they were pretty yummy!
