The inspiration for this sauce comes from a dessert The Slanted Door in San Francisco used to sell. It was a house made tapioca pudding, drizzled in a dark sauce and topped with diced fruit. It was divine. I was sad when they quit selling the dessert so I set out to make the sauce on my own. Warning: This sauce is highly addictive and, once you try it, you will start looking for things on which to drizzle its dark, golden goodness.
