Recipe Notes

*The sugar will have to be adjusted depending on the sweetness of the berries. **For a coulis, take the finished sauce, puree in a blender and then strain through a fine mesh strainer. This is usually ideal for applications with cheesecakes or other instances where a smooth sauce is needed.
