  • Drain mixture through a fine mesh strainer, pressing raspberry pulp with a spatula to extract as much liquid as possible. Discard solids and store syrup in a sealed container in the refrigerator.

Cook's Note:

If using frozen berries, add them while the syrup is on the burner. Return syrup and frozen berries to a boil; remove from heat, mash, and let steep as directed in the recipe.

I used this exact recipe provided to make a raspberry vinaigrette. I then added 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar, and pepper to taste. Placed it in a bottle, shook it up, and drizzled it on my salad. It was wonderful! Read More

Multiplied due to 5 cups of raspberry sauce. Came out pretty runny. Should have cooked longer to thicken. Read More

I didn't mash but put it in the food processor and blended I dreaded of mashing. It was just easier for me. I did wait for it to steep and cool before doing it. It may be a little thicker but the taste was still good. I used a little more than 1 c of raspberries too. Put it in some fresh lemo aide and it was delicious! Read More

I made this using frozen raspberries to use in raspberry lemonade sangria. This was so easy and came out wonderfully! I doubled it with no problem. I didn't mash and strain because I don't have a fine strainer, but I used my immersion blender and it is fine. I'd probably boil it longer to thicken it for anything but drinks. Read More
