How to make raspberry sauce?
Raspberry sauce is very simple and easy to make with few ingredients. All you need to do is to puree the fruit, strain to discard seeds and then boil with sugar and lemon juice until thick.
If the sauce is too thick to use as a topping then just add a little water and simmer to thin it.
Add a dash of vanilla extract to infuse lovely flavour to ice cream.
Condensed milk could be used instead of sugar.
Handful chocolate chips or chopped nuts make a great addition. Add them just after whipping cream and raspberry sauce and then gently fold in to incorporate.
Tips and Tricks to make creamy homemade ice cream
Whip cream and raspberry sauce just until soft peaks. Do not overwhip as it may ruin the texture of the ice cream.
Lemon juice not only enhances the flavour but also balances the sweet and tart flavours of raspberry.
Let the ice cream tray sit for 5-10 minutes before you serve. This helps to get rid of ice crystals and soften the ice cream to make it easy to scoop out.
It is essential to strain raspberry puree to remove tiny seeds which otherwise would affect texture of ice cream.
High fat cream provides the creamy and smooth ice cream. Higher the fat content, creamier the ice cream would be.
Ensure the sauce is not too thick as it thickens further once it cools down completely.
Use chilled bowl and cold double cream to speed up whipping process.
