5. Watch the pot carefully and stir constantly.
6. Taste and see if you need to add honey or sugar substitute to sweeten to your taste.
Wojapi is sometimes the consistency of pudding. For a thicker berry mix, you can use cornstarch.
7. Continue to simmer to reduce the berry mix to the thickness you want. Keep stirring constantly until you have the desired consistency.
Or place one tablespoon of cornstarch into a cup, add cold water. Slowly add to hot pot of berries and stir to the thickness you want.
