strawberry coulis

mmmm, yum! Strawberry Coulis is a must to have small containers in the freezer for when you need a fruity sauce.
Recipe: 5 1/2 cups chopped strawberries
3/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup water
Put in a saucepan, bring to boil and stir to dissolve sugar. Turn off the heat, cool a bit and then blend. You can sieve it to remove seeds but I don't bother, they probably contain vitamin E or something.
Freeze or keep in the fridge a few days.

I used double the amount to get these containers.

I like to put a tub into my icecream maker with some blackberries and raspberries, whatever I have really. Some low fat milk a couple of eggs, some sugar, not much, some cream if I have a bit, some times not then it is more like gelati than icecream.
I still have 1 kilo of my home grown blackberries in the freezer, from thornless blackberry plants, so easy to grow.

  1. How wonderful to have access to so much blackberries. Yum! I've resisted the ice cream maker up until now...not sure if I could though if I had all your berries.
