In 2001, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I wasn’t a good candidate for chemo. I took tamoxifen instead and gave my trouble to God—just as Dr. Peale suggested in his book, "Thought Conditioners". Since then I’ve remained cancer free. -Guideposts Magazine reader
2. Whisk maple syrup, pomegranate molasses, olive oil, salt and a few grinds of pepper in large bowl. Add berries and stir gently until coated.
3. Spread mixture on baking sheet in a single layer (save any leftover juices).
4. Bake 90 minutes or until berries are about half their original size, stirring halfway through baking time.
5. Let cool, then transfer berries and any remaining juices to a bowl. Gently stir in basil; let sit 5 minutes for flavors to meld. Serve warm or room temperature
