Dudes. Let’s talk about fruits. In specific, let’s go ahead and talk about fruit sauces. Y’know, the ones that usually basically look like purple glop and are overly sweet and don’t much resemble the fruit they came from. Those ones. Let’s go ahead and say we’ll never eat another one of those again. Not on a cheesecake or a scoop of ice cream or anything.
Instead, let’s all eat this sauce. Because it’s the best sauce. Because it’s a little sweet, but it’s mostly tart, and it’s so bright red, and it tastes like the fruit it is, only, you know, even better. Oh yeah, and also, it takes, like, ten seconds to make.
Go ahead. Do it.
- 1/2 cup (ish? make as much as you want, honestly) fresh raspberries (or strawberries or blackberries or boysenberries…)
- Juice of 1/2 a lemon or lime
- 2 tbsp sugar
Blend. Strain through a mesh sieve if you’re not into seeds. Don’t if you’re lazy. Drizzle that sweet-tart gold all over, well, everything. But especially cake, and whipped cream, and ice cream, and cheesecake.. and.. well, yeah.
