Make this delicious, flavorful sauce in under 10 minutes using fresh or frozen raspberries. 3 simple ingredients are all you need.
12 oz. (approx. 3 cups) fresh or frozen raspberries, divided
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (1 lemon should yield enough juice)
In 2 quart microwave-safe bowl, stir together 2 cups of the raspberries, brown sugar and lemon juice. (Don't use a smaller bowl or the mixture may overflow as it cooks.) Microwave uncovered at full power for 8 minutes total, stopping and stirring after 4 minutes. Remove from microwave and stir remaining raspberries into hot mixture just until combined. Cool at room temperature, uncovered, for 30 minutes; sauce will thicken some as it cools. Cover and store in refrigerator. Keeps for at least 1 week.
Serve over ice cream, cheesecake, angel food cake, pancakes, waffles or toast.
HINTS: --Frozen raspberries are picked at their peak of ripeness and often provide consistently better flavor and deeper color than fresh grocery store raspberries. --If using frozen raspberries, they do not need to be thawed before making this sauce.
