Featured Recipe: Seedless raspberry sauce
This recipe takes out the fiber, but leaves a big, concentrated raspberry flavor. You can add it to a vinaigrette salad dressing or layer it with strawberry preserves and whipped cream in a cocktail glass.
- 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
- 1/4 cup sugar (or 3 tbsp. granulated sugar substitute)
- 1 tsp. lemon juice
Bring berries, sugar (or sweetener), and lemon juice to a boil. Let thicken and cool slightly. Press mixture through a fine strainer. This will take patience and about 20 minutes of mashing, but you will be rewarded with a rich, seedless sauce. Discard seeds.
