This Mixed Berry Coulis Recipe is an easy recipe to make a delicious topping for puddings, ice cream, sorbets, cakes, or to add to a raspberry smoothie, and more!
Use 2 cups of mixed raspberries, blueberries, strawberries or blackberries ... whatever berries you prefer or have on hand!
Note - Gently rinse the berries under cold water prior to the start of this recipe.
1/2 cup cassis
2 cups mixed fresh berries (raspberries, blueberries, strawberries or blackberries)
2 cups extra fine sugar
1 3/4 cups water
In a medium size pan, heat the cassis, berries, sugar and water, and bring mixture to a boil.
Reduce the heat to "low", and allow the mixture to simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring almost constantly to avoid sticking and burning.
Transfer the berry mixture to a food processor or a blender, and puree.
Pass the puree through a sieve to remove any seeds. (Use the backside of a spoon to press the berry mixture through the sieve.)
Return the strained berry mixture to the pan, and simmer for an additional 10 - 15 minutes or until the mixture thickens in consistency.
Allow to cool and serve over desserts, cakes, puddings, etc. Or add to milkshakes and smoothies!
Makes approximately 2 1/2 cups of mixed berry topping.
