Here is another one of my favorite dessert sauces; this time made from raspberry seconds.

Raspberries go great with oranges so in this recipe I add Navel orange supremes and Triple Sec.


INGREDIENTS

  • 8 6 oz packs of raspberries (seconds if available)
  • Supremes from 1 Navel oranges
  • 1/4 cup Triple Sec (orange liqueur)
  • 1/4 cup organic raw cane sugar
  • 1/4 cup water

DIRECTIONS

Preparation:

  • Inspect raspberries and remove and discard any berries that are damaged, discolored, or moldy; wash and drain.
  • Cut supremes from one orange; set aside.

Cooking:

  • Note:  This step in the process may take up to 45 minutes
    • 15 minutes to cook the sauce.
    • An additional 10-15 minutes to strain the pureed sauce to remove any large particles such as seeds
    • An additional 10-15 minutes to reduce the sauce if it’s really watery.
  • Place all the ingredients into a medium to large soup or sauce pot and cook on medium-high for 15 minutes or until the berries have softened.
  • Pour the contents of the pot into a high-speed blender and puree for a very smooth texture.
    • Note:  You may have to do this in batches.  Do not overfill your blender.
    • Safety Tip!:  BE CAREFUL, the contents of the pot are HOT, and hot liquids in a blender will react more vigorously when processed (i.e. the top will fly off the blender because of the expanding steam if the top is not held down ).
  • Remove seeds (optional):
    • Place a strainer over a clean soup or sauce pot; you will not need as large a pot as the first, cooking, step.
    • Pour the pureed sauce from the blender into a strainer and push the pureed sauce through the strainer using a hard spatula or spoon.
  • Desired consistency:
    • If you like your sauces runny then stop here; your dessert sauce is done and ready to use hot, warm, or cold.
    • If you like your sauces thicker then place the pureed sauce into a large enough sauce pan on medium heat and cook further until you reach the consistency you desire.
  • Use immediately or store in the fridge for up to 7 days, freezer for 6 months, or canned (pasteurized) for up to one year.
