Raspberry Sauce

"A very delightful sauce that can be used on various dishes. When using the sauce on a cheesecake, let it drizzle over the edges. When serving the cheesecake, spoon 2 tablespoons on the serving plate, the place the cheesecake piece into the sauce. You can also substitute and use blueberries for a sauce."

    Delicious, and easy. I used frozen raspberries and elected not to strain it, since I like the chunks in there. Thanks so much for sharing!

    Great flavor. I used frozen raspberries. It was nice and tart while still being sweet enough. Served with chocolate filled puff pastries. Thank you.

    This sauce was FANTASTIC. And so easy to make. I made a reduction with it, and drizzled it over Everyday Living Lemon Squares (#117636). Thanks for sharing this sauce recipe.

    I made this using frozen raspberries and the results were great. Last night I served this on chocolate cake. This morning the left overs are going on pancakes. What a great and versitile sauce.


I live in Burnaby, British Columbia. I am retired and have written a cookbook entitled, From Uncle Bill's Kitchen. I am a recipe developer, author, publisher, distributor and a chef. My cookbook is very unique as I have a Nutrient Analysis for each ingredient used in each recipe that shows you the values for Calories, Fat, Cholesterol and Sodium.
