I skipped the 3rd step entirely! I used one box of thawed Birdseye's frozen raspberries, and they mashed quite simply during the heating / stirring process. I found the consistency was just right, so there was no need to use a blender to puree & no need to do any straining through a sieve. (If you don't have corn starch on hand, note that the same amount of potato starch worked just fine.) As a raspberry lover I will be making this sauce over and over again--it's yummy!
A good, but rather ordinary raspberry sauce I had hoped would be a little different with the addition of the orange juice. It was not nearly sweet enough which is easy to fix, but the real disappointment was that the orange juice wasn't even noticeable. Still, it's a good, basic sauce.
I've made this both ways, with and without the third step, and I found that the puree/strain results in a better sauce. It's not bad the other way, but it's better when the recipe is followed!
I also used frozen raspberries, skipped 3rd step and added a little more sugar to our taste. Thank You so much for posting this EASY and Delicious recipe. I wanted to bake a very special birthday cake and I used this raspberry sauce as a filling for a doulble layer chocolate cake, frosted with a butter cream cheese frosting, topped with a few whole raspberries and chocolate shavings. :)
Delish! I used frozen raspberries. I took the Philadelphia Ready-to-Eat cheesecake filling, stirred in Amaretto to taste, poured that in individual graham cracker shells, then put this sauce on top by putting it in a baggie, cutting the corner off and squeezing stripes on the cheesecake. VERY tasty!!!
I used frozen raspberries in this recipe and Truvia sweetener (six packets of Truvia is equal to 1/4 cup granulated sugar). I didn't bother to puree this sauce as I wanted a chunkier sauce to spoon over homemade waffles. Everything about this sauce was perfect. Not too sweet with a touch of tartness--it went perfectly with the waffles I made. Excellent!
Great recipe. I omitted the oj and added 1/3 of a cup of sugar instead of a 1/4 as I used fresh berries and they were a bit more tart. At first I was nervous when the sauce looked cloudy due to the starch, but I let it cook down, blended it and then strained it and it looked perfect. I even added 3 tablespoons of this to the "Best Lemonade Ever" recipe for berry lemonade and drizzled some over the white chocolate cheesecake recipe.
Frozen raspberries worked well in this. Thaw, strain the juice, and use it as part of the water it calls for. It came out beautifully. The tartness was the perfect complement to my cheesecake. It got raves!!
