I’m embarrassed to post this recipe because it’s so easy. It can’t even be called a recipe.
Here’s what happens: Berry season starts, my eyes get really wide, my stomach stretches, and even though I try to eat as many raspberries and strawberries as I can (summer doesn’t start until you’ve overdosed), it’s just not possible to eat them up before they start to get moldy.
Especially raspberries. Right?
Those little suckers are like fireflies–so gorgeous and then Poof! they’re dim or dead. Especially if they come straight from the farmers market.
So here’s the solution.
Super Simple berry Sauce
- Raspberries (or strawberries, loganberries, blackberries, or marionberries)
- Sugar (to your sweetness level)
- Some lime juice
Now Do This
- Throw all the ingredients in a bowl and mash them with a potato masher.
I told you it was that easy. And you’re like, “Duh. That’s called mashing berries. I do it all the time.” And I’m like, “Invite me over.”
Baby Woww invited hizzself over:
You should put the sauce in jars so you can freeze it or store it easily.
Your sauce will want to pour itself onto
- oatmeal shortbread
- ice cream
It will also want to be infused into gin or bourbon or vodka.
BTW, I’m sure a fork will work for mashing, but you should really have a potato masher in your kitchen (it’s nicest to have two–keep your eyes peeled at thrift shops).
