I love raspberries. They were on sale this week, so I couldn’t resist grabbing a couple little containers. They were still kind of expensive, but worth every penny!
I made some sauce/syrup out of them and it was mighty tasty. Here’s my recipe!
Raspberry -OR- Blueberry Sauce/Syrup
- 1 1/2 C raspberries (one of those 5-6 oz containers) -OR- 1 C blueberries (I’ve only ever used fresh fruit for this recipe)
- 3/4 C sugar
- 1/3 C water
- 2 t. lemon juice
Bring to a boil. Lower heat. Simmer for a bit. That’s it! Refrigerate leftovers.
NOTE: If you want to thicken it up (which you probably do, the raspberry syrup was a little thin, but it still tasted awesome)…you can sub some of the sugar for karo syrup and/or add a little cornstarch to the water. I’ve always just sort of done this off the cuff. If I ever actually pay attention, I’ll provide measurements for you.
