  • 3 cups fresh or frozen slightly sweetened raspberries
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
Thaw berries, if frozen. Do not drain. Place half of the berries in a blender container or food processor bowl. Cover and blend or process until berries are smooth. Press berries through a fine-mesh sieve; discard seeds. Repeat with remaining berries. (You should have about 1-1/4 cups sieved puree.)
In a small saucepan stir together sugar and cornstarch. Add sieved berries. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Remove from heat. Transfer to a small bowl. Cover and chill at least 1 hour before serving. Serve over angel food cake, cheesecake, or ice cream. (Cover and chill any leftovers for up to 1 week.) Makes about 1 cup sauce.
