Berry Pomegranate Coulis
Welcome back to our blog!
It has been a very long time since we posted a blog entry. We've been so busy with our lives that we left our blog page collecting dust, and now we are thrilled to introduce to our readers this simple and quick recipe for a coulis.
This is a fruit sauce that can be used as a dessert topping for ice cream, petite cakes, yogurts, etc It is so simple to make and it is basically a puree of fresh fruits, then sweetened with sugar to thicken.
In this recipe, we used blackberries and raspberries with the accompany of pomegranate juice, so they produce a very deep red color and the taste is sweet with a little bit of the tartness. It is great to put on top of plain vanilla yogurt and some fresh berries.
Without further ado, here are the steps.
- You can make the coulis with any kind of soft fruit; let your creativity go wild.
- If you can't find caster in store, then blend your regular white sugar in a food processor until it breaks down finer, and produces "sugar mist" as we call it.
- If you don't like pomegranate juice, then you can leave it out or substitute with lemon juice.
- If it's not berry season, you might need increase the amount of sugar to taste.
- When passing the fruit puree through the sieve or sifter, use a small spoon and stir it inside the sieve to let puree pass faster.
- 6 oz Berries
- 3 oz Caster Sugar
- 8 tsp Water
- 3 tsp Pomegranate
- Put the berries in the food processor and puree them well.
- Pass the mixture through a sieve or a sifter to leave out the seeds.
- Put water and sugar in a small pan and bring to a boil (when bubbles start to form, lower heat to simmer).
- Stir occasionally.
- Separately, heat the fruit puree on medium heat and stir occasionally.
- Mix in the fruit puree into the syrup.
- Return to boil, stir occasionally to prevent burning.
- Take off the heat and pass the mixture through the sieve or sifter again.
- Stir in the pomegranate juice, then let it cool.
- Put the mixture in an air tight container and store in the fridge.
