This is a quick and easy way to turn fresh or frozen raspberries into a sweet sauce. Pair with your favourite desserts; like rich dark chocolate cake, warm crepes, or chocolate cups filled with lemon curd, cream and berries.


Units Scale
  • 1 pint fresh raspberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup water


  1. In a saucepan, whisk water and cornstarch together until blended.
  2. Add raspberries, sugar, and orange juice, heat at medium high until blended (crushing raspberries as you blend).
  3. Turn temperature to high and bring to boil, then simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly until thickened (note: the sauce will thicken further as it cools).
  4. Using a sieve separate the seeds and the juice, discard the seeds and store the sauce in a container or glass jar.
  5. Serve warm or cold.


The raspberry sauce will last up to a week in the fridge.
If you like your sauces thicker add more cornstarch, approx. 1/2 tablespoon. Just make sure you are always blending cornstarch with a little water first, then add to your sauce.
