What is raspberry puree?
Raspberry puree is simply raspberries that have been blended until they form a smooth sauce.
Can I use frozen raspberries for this sauce?
Absolutely, and for most of the year, frozen raspberries are the only option available to you.
Using frozen raspberries is fine, but in our opinion, the taste isn’t as fresh and you’ll notice that the pureed raspberries produce a darker color puree or sauce.
How can I make raspberry puree sweeter?
If you want a sweeter raspberry puree or sauce, then all you need to do is add sugar.
We recommend doing it slowly, try adding 1tsp at a time, stir it in and then taste.
Repeat until you have the taste you prefer.
Do not add sugar to the puree if you are giving it to a baby.
Is raspberry puree the same as raspberry jam?
No, they are not the same.
Raspberry puree is not cooked, whereas raspberry jam is and we don’t add any sugar to our sauce.
What equipment will I need?
You’ll need a blender, and if you want a seedless raspberry puree, you’ll need a sieve.
How do I store it?
Freshly made pureed raspberries will keep stored in an airtight container in the fridge, for up to 2 weeks.
You can also freeze your raspberry puree for up to 3 months, so why not make a batch of it and have a taste of summer in your freezer whenever you need it?
Does raspberry puree have seeds in it?
Yes, it does, but they are easily removed by using a fine-mesh sieve.
Raspberry puree notes and tips
- Haven’t got a blender?
Simply use a potato masher intially and then a fork, to create a smooth sauce, yes it’s more effort but it’s a good workaround option until you get a blender.
- Don’t want the seeds?
If you want to guarentee that those pesky seeds don’t make an appearance in your puree, then make sure you have a fine mesh sieve, one that won’t let the tiny seeds through.
- Make the most of your freezer
Freeze your raspberry puree in airtight freezer bags, when you put them in the frezzer lay them flat, so they freeze flat, this way they don’t take up as much space.
