History

I just love raspberries. I had this idea that popped into my head for a raspberry spread, jam and sauce all in one with NO ADDED SUGAR. Something really yummy, something with quadruple fruit. So, I tested my idea and came up with this super easy recipe that’s both light and fresh. You can spread it on toast, add some to your yogurt or ice-cream… and even use it in your favourite desserts. The possibilities are endless. Bon appétit!

What more could you ask for?

This recipe was inspired by the Picky Logger recipe featured in my cookbook Goodbye Refined Sugar.

*European version: Je déclare la guerre au sucre raffiné, from Hachette.

Storage

  • Refrigerate in an airtight container
  • This sauce freezes well
