How to Make Raspberry Sauce With Fresh or Frozen Berries
Did I mention how easy it’s to make this berry sauce either with fresh or with frozen fruits? Well, it’s incredibly easy, and I’ll show you how to make it in less than 20 minutes, fuss-free!
Start by measuring 2 cups and a half cups of fresh or frozen raspberries and heat them in a saucepan with sweetener, water, and lemon juice to release their liquids. Stir the mixture constantly over medium heat and bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat and let them simmer for about 3-4 minutes until it starts to thicken naturally.
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract, butter and a pinch of salt. Butter enhances the taste and gives a delicious rich touch along with that pinch of salt that makes a huge difference in taste.
It’s time to taste test and adjust the sweetness. Although I find this sauce sweet enough for my taste buds, this can vary from a person to another. If you find it too tangy, stir in some extra sweetener. It really depends on how ripe the raspberries are, some may be sweeter than others, so it’s always best to taste. Remember that you can always add more sweetener, but you can never take it out.
Let the berry sauce cool for about 15-20 minutes before serving.
Expert tip: If you want perfectly smooth raspberry sauce, strain raspberries to remove the seeds. I don’t mind the seeds.
