  • 1 pint raspberries
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tbsp cornstarch


  • In a saucepan, bring raspberries, water, sugar, and lemon juice to a boil in over medium high heat.
  • Turn heat down to medium low and simmer 5-7 minutes to thicken. Occasionally stir and crush the raspberries. After it’s cooked down a bit, take a few tablespoon of the hot crushed berry mixture and put into a bowl with the cornstarch.
  • Mix until thoroughly incorporated and then pour the mixture back into the saucepan.
  • Mix together and bring to a boil and cook for another minute or two.
  • Immediately remove from heat and strain out seeds by placing the mixture into a strainer over a medium sized bowl. Scrap the mix along the strainer with a spatula until just the seeds and the raspberry coulis sauce is in the bowl. 
  • Let cool before covering and refrigerating until ready to use. It will thicken as it cools. This will last up to a week in the fridge or a few months in the freezer. Once you're ready to use you can thin it to the desired consistency with orange juice, flavored liquors, or water.
