Home Breakfast Simple Raspberry Sauce

Simple Raspberry Sauce

by Laura

It is raspberry season here in my garden.  I decided the other day to use some of my berries to make a simple raspberry sauce.  I used my sauce to serve over waffles but it would also works well for cheesecake, ice cream, crepes etc.

Now, I wanted my sauce to have chunks of berries. So I only added half of them while making the sauce, then folded in the other half at the end.  For a less chunky sauce, just add all the berries at the beginning.  If you want a seedless sauce, you can strain the sauce after cooking it to remove the seeds.

You may also need to add more sugar to this simple raspberry sauce if your berries are too tart.  Start with the 1/2 cup sugar. After the sauce is finished, give it a taste.  I like a little tartness.  You can always mix in some more sugar if needed at that point.  Just mix for a minute to make sure the sugar dissolves completely.  You can also leave out the lemon juice if you want to, but I love how it brings out the fresh flavor of the berries.

I made this to put on cheesecake and it was simple and delicious. I used lime instead of lemon (love!) and I cooked all the raspberries instead of half. I cooked longer than a minute and smushed them as they cooked. I strained the sauce too. Thanks for the recipe!

We have done this twice now with some fresh raspberries from our CSA pickup recently and OMG this is delicious! Had it over chocolate ice cream the first time and had some over some homemade peanut butter chocolate chip waffles tonight. And yes, there is more raspberry sauce left, but not sure how long it will last. My son and hubby had eggo chocolate chip waffles for breakfast the other morning and finished off the first batch. Not sure how long the second batch will last, but we shall see. Does this recipe work well with frozen raspberries?
