Berry coulis have a deep vibrant colour that can make even the simplest desserts look beautiful.This lush red raspberry coulis is one of my favourites to curb those berry cravings and ridiculously easy to make.It has a sweet but tart flavour and goes well with pretty much anything: drizzle it over your pancakes, a loaf of citrus cake or even just a bowl of ice cream!
PREPARATION TIME : 10 MINUTES
- 1 cup fresh raspberries
- 3 tablespoons caster sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice (adjust as per taste)
- 2 tablespoons white wine or framboise liquor *(optional)
Place the raspberries into a blender and pulse until it forms a pureé. Pass the pureé through a fine sieve in order to get rid of the raspberry seeds.
On a low heat, pour the pureé and the caster sugar into a saucepan, add the lemon juice and white wine. Stir continuously with a spatula, while cleaning the sides of the pan every now and then.
Bring to a simmer until the sugar has dissolved and it thickens in consistency. This process barely takes a few minutes and should make about 1 cup of the coulis.. Give it a taste and incase you find it a tad too sweet for your taste, add a dash more of lemon juice and it should be fine!
This coulis can also be made with any other berry of your choice, blueberries, strawberries, cranberries or even a bunch of mixed berries!
Store in a cool place and it should last you a good few days!
Make sure to keep the saucepan on a low heat to avoid burning the sugar.
