Raspberry Sauce/Bing Cherry Sauce... I came up with this recipe on the spur of the moment. I always buy raspberries in the summer and freeze them for things like this. I needed to dress up some molten lava cakes but didn't want to make too much sauce. You can use this sauce on ice cream, cakes, crepes, pancakes and really whatever you may fancy. I think you may be able to add more fruit or cut back a bit on the sugar for a less sweet sauce. Either way, it is a good simple sauce.... more like good raspberry preserves:). You can also make a cherry sauce by using frozen cherries. The sauce can be used on top of pancakes and spread on crepes or served over ice cream... so, so much better than store-bought! As a plus, you can control the sugar amount according to preference. Hope you enjoy...
Bing Cherry Sauce
1.5 lbs frozen bing cherries
2/3 cup sugar, or to taste
1 TBS cornstarch, optional
2 TBS lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla extract
In a sauce pan, add cherries, sugar, cornstarch, and stir to combine. Cook over low-med heat until sauce thickens to your liking... about 20-30 minutes. Stir in lemon juice and vanilla. Allow to cool and store in fridge.
1 cup frozen raspberries( a bit more if you don't want it that sweet)
1/3 cup sugar
1-2 tsp lemon juice or to taste
1. Place raspberries and sugar in a heavy saucepan.
2. Bring to boil stirring constantly.
3. Boil for 5-7 minutes on high stirring constantly so as not to burn. You can see a trail when you scrape the bottom of the pan using your spatula.
