Raspberry Coulis Leftovers

Lynda Collins emailed me with this question about fruit coulis: I unexpectedly had guests cancel a visit. I had prepared raspberry coulis as part of the dessert. Is it possible to freeze the coulis to use at a later date? For any of you that do not know, coulis is a fruit sauce usually made of berries and sugar blended together. Technically, a coulis is not cooked and it is sieved to remove any solids in the sauce. It's good as a garnish for desserts and makes a plate look pretty, it's great to pour over angel food cake, served with a sweet souffle or blanc mange, or used over ice cream. It can even be used as a ripple in ice cream if you like to make your own. It's at its fruity best when berries are in season and only a little sugar is needed to turn them from stain-your-finger-fruits to velvety, smooth coulis. The other great thing about this fruit sauce is that it freezes beautifully. When you defrost it you may need to put it in a blender or through a sieve if it separates, but it should easily restore itself. It's also a great way to put down berries when they are at their best to have a splash of summer on colder days. Raspberry Coulis: 1 cup raspberries 2 - 3 tablespoons white sugar or confectioners sugar 2 tablespoons of water if needed Put fruit and sugar in a blender or food processor, add a bit of water if necessary to blend fruit. Pass through a sieve over a bowl. Discard seeds and pulp. Use within three days over poached peaches, chocolate cake, vanilla ice cream or whatever your taste buds desire. Disagree with my advice?
