Piece of life
I know, I’m honestly behind on my schedule… so you’ll still see recipes with summer fruits around here. But you can still find some raspberries on the shelves so I’m not completely out of the woods. There’s still time to get ahead of it, it’s going to be a long time without these little beauties.
As you know, I like to enjoy the high season for stocking up on fruit. I freeze some whole, use others to make jams and lately I’ve been getting into coulis. But why had I never done it before?
About the raspberry coulis
Fruit coulis are a must for desserts and pastries. They are used to drizzle over desserts, to garnish pies, to flavour creams or to stuff fresh fruit… their use is multiple and varied.
The raspberry coulis is simply a liquid raspberry sauce. To make it, raspberries are cooked with sugar [and a little lemon juice]. Once cooked, your mixture should be strained to remove the seeds [although I sometimes keep them for some desserts]. You can then use it as you want. I freeze the coulis to enjoy it all season.
