FRUIT COULIS

A coulis is a form of thick sauce made from puréed fruits. Fruit coulis are most often used on desserts. Raspberry coulis, for example, is especially popular with poached apples.

A wide range of fruits can be used, and the coulis will keep for 3 days in a sealed jar in the fridge, and up to 3 months if frozen.

Use seasonal berries, and served drizzled over tarts, poached fruits, ice cream or panna cotta.
