Berry coulis (uncooked)

    10 min

    Coulis are basically very simple fruit purées, made with raw or cooked fruit, sweetened if necessary. Coulis made with raw fruit will retain more of the vitamin C content, which is otherwise reduced through even the briefest cooking. Almost any soft fruit can be used for an uncooked coulis – kiwi, blackberries, peach, mango and papaya, to name just a few.

    1. In a bowl, mash the berries with a fork. Mix in the lemon juice and sugar. Alternatively, purée the fruit with the lemon juice and sugar in a food processor or blender.
    2. Spoon the mixture into a fine nylon sieve placed over a bowl. Press the fruit through the sieve using a large spoon or spatula. Chill the coulis before serving.

    Very easy to make. I used mixed frozen fruits and served it to accompany a baked vanilla cheesecake. It was lovely.  -  08 Feb 2010
