  1. I will search no longer for a perfect raspberry coulis, because this is IT! I really appreciate that this one has no cooking, and the pure, fresh taste is delicious. It's lovely to look at, too; very pretty colour. Also, it is terrific that this is a simple, straightforward method that I can always remember: the weight of the berries, divided by 3, equals the weight of the sugar needed (I used super-fine sugar). Perfect! I had 90 grams of raspberries left from a farmer's market purchase earlier this week that I had to do something with, or I would lose them, and so I mixed them with 30 grams of sugar, following this recipe's ratio. How easy is that? I didn't bother with either a blender or a food processor, just whisked them together rapidly once the juices were running (I let the bowl sit on the counter for about an hour first), then let them drip in a sieve. This is one of those keeper recipes that you use forever; thanks for sharing.
  2. Definitely a keeper! I put my food processer on my kitchen scale, zero'ed it out, added berries, then added a third of that weight in sugar. I gave it one quick pulse, let it sit a while and then really whirred it. Strained it through my metal sieve and voila -- delicious!!


This is a picture of me and my husband in Portugal, climbing up above the clouds with our bikes. Right now we are travelling around the world on our bicycles, so I only pop onto Zaar occasionally, when internet connections and time allow me to. If I don't reply to a message about one of my recipes, now you know why! Our trip may take several years so if it's urgent, it's probably better for you to post in the forums ;) Good food is really important to me -- I am happy to pay extra for food that I feel is produced in a sustainable and ethical way and always try to eat using seasonal produce. When we were in the UK we rarely shopped at supermarkets, trying instead to favour small producers, although we were very lucky in that we lived in London and there was lots of choice. We also were fortunate enough to have a weekly organic veg box delivered to our door, filled with so many lovely vegetables for very little money. It really opened my horizons in terms of the variety of vegetables I eat. If you're in the UK, check out Riverford for a box supplier as they're amazing! When I'm not eating I love to take pictures and travel with my husband. <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/World%20Tour/ZWT2.gif">
