I paired made this sauce last night to go with my no bake berry cheesecake, which you can find here. I based my recipe on Emeril Lagasse’s raspberry sauce from his show Emeril Live, episode on Terrines. I just substituted the raspberries with strawberries. I added a little more sugar since I found that my cheesecake needed just that little more of sweetness to it. This sauce still has a nice tartness to it though.
Adapted from Emeril Live, 2000
- 500g strawberries (2 punnets)
- 1/3cup caster sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- Wash strawberries and remove the stems. Roughly chop them up.
- Place strawberries, sugar and lemon juice into a saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat and stir it occasionally with a wooden spoon. The strawberries will breakdown after a few minutes. Continue stirring and cooking until sauce thickens (roughly 15 minutes).
- Remove from the heat and blend the sauce to remove any clumps. Refrigerate until ready to use.
This would be nice served with a cheesecake, like I did, or on top of some ice cream!
