  • 1 1/2 pound raspberries
  • 1-3 tablespoons water as needed
  • 1/4 cup sugar


  • Combine raspberries, sugar, and water in a saucepan over medium heat.
  • Cook and stir until raspberries break down, sugar dissolves, and sauce is heated through, 3-7 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and press sauce through a fine-mesh strainer to remove seeds.
  • Cool to room temperature.


  • Make the raspberry sauce in a heavy bottomed saucepan over a medium heat. The sauce shouldn't boil, it should just be heated through so that the sugar dissolves.
  • If you are making this sauce out of season, you can use frozen raspberries, there's no need to defrost them first.
