Strawberry Coulis

Cooking Time:
roughly 15 minutes
Serves:
275ml

The recipe below gives a rough guideline, but feel free to experiment, combining different fruits and adjusting the sugar content to suit you. You can keep it as a coulis or leave it as a thicker compote, just don’t blitz or strain it.

Ingredients

  • 400g strawberries, hulled and halved
  • 75g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp lemon juice

Method

  1. Heat the strawberries in a covered heavy-bottomed pan for 4-5 minutes, or until they start to soften. Add the sugar, stir, cover again and cook for at least 2-3 minutes, until dissolved.
  2. Blend in a food processor or with a hand blender until smooth, then strain through a sieve into a bowl and add the lemon juice.
