A delicious addition to ice cream

Having a bit more time on my hands, I decided to make a blackberry and raspberry coulis today to pour over ice cream after dinner.

This is how:

150 g raspberries
150 g blackberries
2 tablespoons sugar
1 heaped teaspoon cornflour
a little water
1 standard measure vodka

Puree the raspberries and blackberries together and then strain them through a sieve into a pan.
Mix the cornflour with the water to make a runny paste and add it and the sugar to the puree.
Cook on a low heat stirring constantly.
When the mixture starts to bubble and thicken, immediately remove it from the heat.
Add the vodka and stir in well.
Transfer the coulis to something from which it can be poured.

Allow to cool and pour it over good vanilla ice cream. It is delicious.

You can substitute the blackberries with strawberries (indeed you could probably do any combination).

If you have guests round for dinner, it is fun to watch them fighting over the last of it!

my version involves nuking (read microwaved) strawberry jam....

How did I miss this? It looks great, much better than all those vodka-less coulis recipes. :-) Okay, I definitely have to try it!
