Oregon Raspberry or Blackberry Sauce
So simple and so divine! Pour over luscious Oregon-made ice cream and enjoy the bounty of Oregon.
1 1/2 cups raspberries or blackberries (fresh or frozen)
½ cup sugar
1½ Tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons cornstarch
In a blender, blend fresh or thawed frozen berries for 20 seconds. Place a mesh sieve over a large bowl. Pour mixture through the sieve and press using a plastic spatula or spoon. Press to extract puree and remove seeds.
Pour berry puree into a medium pan. Mix in sugar and heat to 160 degrees. Stir often.
Mix lemon juice and cornstarch into a slurry or thick liquid. Add to berry puree and cook for 3 more min, or until cornstarch is completely cooked and puree is thickened into sauce.
Pour over ice cream or frozen yogurt, and enjoy!
