Extremely easy to make and goes beautifully with a New York cheesecake. Like some others, I prefer not to sieve it.

Really easy to make and goes perfectly with vanilla ice cream. I picked the blackberries so it was practically free! Sieving it at the end is a must if you don't like the seeds.

this is lovely! I didn't sieve at the end either and made the vanilla ice cream taste like raspberry ripple

This is a lovely recipe! I made this, adding honey rather than sugar, and did not sieve it at the end either. It tasted lovely with a christmas chocolate log, and we had some again the next day with some ice cream. It tasted gorgeous! I'd definitely make this again in the future.

Great recipe! I've used both blackberries and raspberries and did not sieve it at the end, as the fruit pulp/bits makes a good addition. The sauce tastes just like a blackberry/raspberry jam. I've used this sauce for the icing of the Coconut and Raspberry Cupcakes recipe on BBC Good Food: http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/2198648/coconut-and-raspberry-cupcakes?binderbox=showlogin&countView=false

A very delicious and easy recipe! I had some blackberries in my fridge that had seen better days and instead of throwing them out thought I'd see if they were still good for a coulis and they were! Turned out great and had the coulis over homemade waffles with cream!

delicious and easy to make, makes ice cream something really special. I also added a desert spoon full of sloe gin (berries and sloes picked by me and my husband, love to do a bit of foraging) and this made it very tasty. will definately try with other fruits too. :-)

I added a few scrapes of lemon peel and two teaspoons of lemon juice. That really brightened up the coulis.
