Red Raspberry Sauce

Scripture to Live By:
But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror.  For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.
 If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person's religion is worthless.  Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.
James 1:22-26

Recipe Post: 
A former pastor gave me some  ever-bearing raspberry plants, several years back.  Each year the crop yield has been a handful or so of raspberries.  The raspberries have been plentiful this season. We are attributing the change to the amount of rain we have had in the months of July and August.
So I decide to make some Raspberry Sauce and enjoy it over ice-cream. I am thoroughly enjoying it.  I found the recipe at but have adapted it to our families taste.  So if you would like to try it the recipe is as follows:

Ingredients needed:
1 pint fresh red raspberries
1/3 cup of sugar (depending on your taste)
2 Tablespoons orange juice
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup of cold water

I didn't have any orange juice on hand so I used an orange to get my two tablespoons of orange juice.

Roll orange to soften up the inside of the orange, cut in half and squeeze the juice from the orange.  

Combine the first three, (raspberries, sugar, and orange juice)
in a saucepan.  Mix thoroughly.

In a small bowl mix 2 Tablespoons cornstarch and 1 cup of cold water until smooth.  

Then pour into the saucepan with the berries, sugar and orange juice and bring to a boil. 

Boil 5 minutes stirring constantly so it doesn't burn or stick to the saucepan.

(The sauce will thicken slightly while cooking but will thicken more as it cools.)

Remove from heat and pour mixture into blender and puree.  

Then pour the puree into a strainer and strain any remainder seeds from puree.  

Serve warm or cold.  The sauce should keep in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.

Sauce was hot when I poured it on the ice cream.  I couldn't wait to have some.

It had cooled and had thickened in the above and below picture.

We enjoy it poured over ice cream, pancakes, and cottage cheese, as seen above.  
You could also serve it over pound cake, plain yogurt, or any thing you would like.

So tangy and delicious. Hope you will try it, 
I know you will enjoy it if you have a taste for raspberries.
