Bright and tangy, this homemade raspberry sauce is easy to make with frozen raspberries, and pairs perfectly with so many desserts.


  • 1 (12-oz.) bag frozen raspberries
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ¼ cup water


  1. In a medium saucepan add raspberries, sugar, salt, and water. 
  2. Bring to boiling, reduce to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes. Remove pan from heat; let stand 20 minutes.
  3. Transfer mixture to fine mesh sieve to strain, pushing the mixture through so that only the sauce remains. Discard seeds.
  4. Refrigerate, covered, up to 7 days, or freeze up to three months. Serve warm or cold.
