Berry Coulis Recipe

Recipes and styling Raphaella Frame-Tolmie Photographs Sean Calitz The uses for this simple berry sauce are endless. Add it to Greek yoghurt for a decadent dessert (or breakfast), or serve it as an accompaniment to a chocolate pudding to cut through the richness. It’s a slightly healthier alternative to chocolate sauce on ice cream, and it can even work as a savoury relish, for example with duck. Ingredients:

  • 500g mixed berries
  • Caster sugar, to taste
  • Water
  • Lemon juice
Directions: Place the washed berries in a saucepan and sprinkle the caster sugar evenly on top. Cover with the water and add a squeeze of lemon juice. Place over gentle heat, and cook, crushing the berries with a wooden spoon, until the sugar has dissolved. Blend the mixture with a hand stick blender and pass through a strainer if you want a very smooth coulis. Refrigerate until completely cool.
