Notes

This ruby-red classic sauce is the favorite sweet sauce of European chefs. It is wonderful with cheesecake, such as White Chocolate Cheesecake , or with cheese or fruit blintzes, vanilla ice cream, or fruit salad. Accent it with raspberry brandy or raspberry liqueur just before serving, if you like.

Ingredients

  • 6 cups (about 1½ pounds) fresh raspberries; or two 10- to 12-ounce packages frozen unsweetened or lightly sweetened raspberries, thawed
  • About 1½ cups powdered sugar, sifted
  • About 1 to 2 tablespoons strained fresh lemon juice (optional)

Directions

1. Puree raspberries in a food processor or blender. Add 1½ cups powdered sugar. Process until very smooth. Taste and add another tablespoon or two powdered sugar if desired.

2. Strain sauce in batches into a bowl, pressing on pulp in strainer; use rubber spatula to scrape mixture from underside of strainer. Continue straining remaining sauce.

3. Cover and refrigerate up to 2 days. Stir sauce before serving and add lemon juice, if using. Serve cold.
