Combine the sugar and 2 tablespoons water in a medium-size saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves. Add the blueberries and strawberries and cook, stirring frequently, until the berries have softened and the sauce has thickened, about 10 minutes.
Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the lime juice. Serve warm or at room temperature.
The sauce can be refrigerated, covered, for up to 5 days. Reheat it in a microwave or over low heat before using.
This recipe makes about 2 cups of sauce.
