Strawberry Coulis

What could be better on a lovely June day than sitting out in the garden eating a big bowl of strawberries with a dollop of Devonshire clotted cream? But when I  want to tart up a dessert or make a topping for ice cream,  I make this lovely strawberry coulis.

Recently I made a lemon tart and this sweet coulis complemented it beautifully. If you're pushed for time, you can buy your tart and make it it into something special with the addition of the coulis. It's so simple to make. Sainsbury's do a really nice lemon tart. Dust it with icing sugar, add the coulis and it instantly turns into a posh pud.

Strawberry Coulis 


125ml (4fl oz) water
125g (4oz) caster sugar
300g (10oz) hulled and halved strawberries
1tbsp fruit-flavoured alcohol or liqueur (optional)

    1. Bring the water and caster sugar to the boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar.
    2. Add the hulled and halved strawberries and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until soft.
    3. Purée the mixture and, if desired, stir in 1 tablespoon of fruit-flavoured alcohol.

It will store in the fridge for up to two days.
