Made this to use in your recipe #394323, & also had it over frozen yogurt! Definitely a winning recipe, & next time I'll be doubling the recipe amounts! Very, very flavorful! Thanks much for sharing it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Thaw raspberries.
  2. Place in medium saucepan. Cover and gently simmer 15 minutes. Put through a fine strainer into a glass measuring cup, pressing gently to extract as much juice as possible. Discard seeds and pulp.
  3. Add water to juice, if necessary to make 2/3 cup. Return juice to clean pan. Add remaining ingredients. Simmer and stir until jelly melts, sugar dissolves and mixture is smooth.
  4. Pour into an airtight jar. Cool. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  5. **For a thicker sauce, either add more jelly or do not dilute juice from raspberries.
  6. **If sauce becomes too thick, add water, bring to a boil and stir until smooth.
