I am thrilled to introduce you to my first contributor here on I Dig Pinterest! Kelley is fantastic and oh-so-talented, but I’ll let her do a more formal introduction. Anyway, I hope you’ll show her some love and drop by her site!
Hey I Dig Pinterest friends! My name is Kelley and I have a foodie blog over at the Grant life. I’m here today to share an super easy and totally delicious recipe with y’all! Yes, I said y’all. I’m from Texas. I’m also a momma to two adorable and rambunctious kiddos, ages 4 and 5. On top of my kids and my blog, I’m also a Texas REALTOR.
Today I’m going to share an easy raspberry sauce. Like way easy! Only a few ingredients easy. Oh and it’s really good too. Are you sold yet? I love this time of year. The weather is nice out and the fresh fruits and veggies from the farmers markets are the best. I grabbed a little box of raspberries when we stopped a few weeks ago.
The one downfall of farm fresh produce is that it doesn’t have preservatives to keep it fresh for long periods of time. So after hitting the farmers market and then doing a little shopping, my berries weren’t so pretty. Tasty, but they had gotten soft in the car a bit. (Insert sad face here.)
Then I realized that my little box of berries would be perfect for raspberry sauce. So I fired up the stove and went to make some yummy sauce since I had everything else on hand. All you need to make this raspberry sauce is:
1/2 cup of water
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of raspberries
In a small saucepan, bring the water and sugar to a rolling boil. Allow the sugar to dissolve completely. Add in the raspberries and allow to boil for a few more minutes. Using a potato masher, mash down the berries while boiling. Remove from heat. The sauce will thicken a bit. Allow to cool, add to a jar with a tight seal and store in the fridge for up to two weeks.
Thanks so much for having me today! I hope y’all will stop by my site and say hello! I have yummy recipes like:
