easy melba sauce

yet another raspberry installment... i just cannot resist sharing another delicious recipe for my favorite fruit, especially when they are home grown! this sauce was originally created by a famous french chef for an australian opera star, dame nellie melba, hence the name. this version is quite simple.

easy melba sauce

1 cup raspberries
1/4 cup sugar

puree' raspberries in a blender or food processor. press the puree through a strainer with a spatula to remove seeds, put it in a small sauce pan. add the sugar and heat over medium heat stirring frequently, until the sugar is dissolved. remove from heat and cool. refrigerate. serve over ice cream or pound cake. traditionally it is served over peaches. i drizzled mine over vanilla ice cream.
