Awaken your taste buds with a lovely combination of raspberry and mint. This sauce creates a nice complement to grilled favorites such as pork kabobs and is a natural for topping dessert. Try drizzling it over a warm brownie topped with vanilla ice cream or serve with cheesecake. Coulis is basically a raw vegetable or fruit puree that has been strained or put through a sieve. If you love the taste of raspberries but are not a big fan of their seeds, this is a perfect solution for enjoying this fruit in its fresh form.

About this recipe

The coulis will stay fresh for a couple days in the refrigerator or it can be frozen for 2–3 months.

Simple Syrup with Herbs

To make any simple syrup using fresh herbs, use equal amounts sugar, water and herbs. Bring the mixture to a boil, and simmer for about 10 minutes, allowing the sugar to dissolve completely and the herbs to integrate and begin to color the syrup. Let the mixture cool, then strain out the herbs and put the syrup into a glass jar or bottle with a secure lid. You can store the simple syrup in a covered jar in the refrigerator for up to a month.
