  • 1/4 cup water
  • 12 oz fresh raspberries
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbs lemon juice
  • 2 Tbs cold water
  • 2 Tbs cornstarch
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • In a medium saucepan add water, raspberries, lemon juice and sugar.
  • Heat for about 5 minutes over medium high heat until the raspberries break down while you mash them around with a spoon.
  • Remove from heat and strain out seeds (if desired) through a fine mesh strainer.
  • Return sauce to pan and place back on heat.
  • In a small bowl whisk together your 2 Tbs water and cornstarch and stir into sauce for about 1 minute until slightly thickened.
  • Remove from heat and stir in your vanilla and salt.


  1. You can use fresh or frozen raspberries for this recipe, we prefer fresh but either will work.
  2. You DO NOT have to strain out the seeds if you do not want to, we like it smooth without them but leave them in if you don't mind seeds.
  3. This can be served in, with or over a multitude of things such as ice cream, muffins, in cakes, added to frostings, etc.
  4. You can make this sauce with pretty much any fruit, so try it with strawberries, blackberries, etc.
  5. When cooking down make sure to press the raspberries so they all absorb into the sauce and you don't have any large chunks.
