|Blackberry Raspberry Coulis|
This recipe isn't a stand alone for the challenge (there is no lemon- I know), but it will be used in two recipes that I am working on (I'm crossing my fingers that they both turn out to be blogworthy). So if you want to make both new recipes this would be a great start. Hint: the recipes to come are very different and would be delicious served together, but are absolute treats all on their own.
Blackberry Raspberry Coulis
(makes approx 1/2 cup)
1/2 cup frozen blackberries, thawed
1/2 cup frozen raspberries, thawed
3 tbsp sugar
I always heap my measurement when using frozen berries. I find that by the time they defrost they reduce to the right amount.
Combine Blackberries, raspberries and sugar in a blender. Puree until smooth. Strain through a fine sieve; line with cheesecloth or an unused j-cloth if you want to remove all of the seeds . Refrigerate until ready to use.
Store unused coulis in a sealed container in the fridge. Enjoy in your favorite recipes or as a delicious topping!
