Homemade Raspberry Sauce

I am always looking for new recipes to try out. Since we often have someone come over during the week I am always looking for easy and simple recipes especially when it comes to dessert.

So when I found Pioneer Women’s Blackberry Cobbler I was happy – only five ingredients, easy instructions and an hour in the oven. I substituted the blackberry for raspberries and decided to serve the cobbler with vanilla ice cream and raspberry sauce. Everyone happily ate it up!

The raspberry sauce I served the cobbler with was homemade. I love making sauces at home because you know exactly what is going into it with no extra hidden ingredients or preservatives.

Raspberry Sauce
Yields approximately 1 ½ cups

1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
12 ounces raspberries

Place sugar and 1/4 cup water in a small saucepan over high heat; stir, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat, and allow syrup to cool completely. Place raspberries and syrup in the jar of a blender; puree until smooth. Pour through a fine sieve or colander into a bowl; discard solids. Serve or store in an airtight container, refrigerated, for up to 5 days.
