    yields Yield: 11/4 cups (10.2 ounces; 285 grams)time---difficultyeasy

    To make this sauce, it is best to use a blender, food processor, or immersion blender. You will also need a fine-mesh sieve. Use ripe, flavorful fruit or your sauce will have no taste. Fruits that make especially good sauces are the berries and really colorful fruits like mango and papaya. Use this recipe as a guideline to create your own fruit sauce.


    Prepared fresh fruit About 3 cups / 10.5 ounces / 300 grams
    Powdered sugar Scant 1/2 cup / 1.8 ounces / 50 grams

    *A few drops fresh lemon juice (if using raspberries)


    Peel, core, seed, or pit the fruit as appropriate and chop into medium-size pieces. Puree the fruit until completely smooth. Add the sugar 2 tablespoons at a time, incorporating it well after each addition and making sure any lumps are dissolved. When using raspberries, add the lemon juice to prevent oxidation (browning) and to enhance the flavor. Watch the consistency and frequently taste for sweetness. The desired sauce is equally sweet and tangy, and smooth. You may not use all of the sugar, or you may need to add a little bit more. If too little sugar is added, the sauce will be runny and tart. To fix this, add more sugar. If too much sugar is added, the sauce will be overly thick, sweet, and it will taste starchy. To fix this, add more fruit puree. The sauce is the ideal consistency when it holds its shape when dribbled onto a plate.

    Strain the sweetened puree through a fine-mesh sieve into a clean bowl. This will separate the pulp from the fruit puree and remove any small seeds. Stir the puree until completely smooth. It will keep in the refrigerator in a small airtight container or zippered-top plastic bag for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 2 months.
