A simple strawberry coulis is a very useful thing! Drizzle over a summery pavlova, give ice cream a fruity boost or use it as a garnish for a slice of cake or tart. It freezes well too, so is a good thing to make if you have an allotment glut of strawberries.





  • Hand blender


Wash, hull and quarter the strawberries
Place in a pan with the icing sugar and lemon juice and simmer down until the strawberries have completely collapsed – about 5–10 minutes
Blend the strawberries into a smooth sauce using a hand blender or blender. Pass through a fine sieve for an extra smooth finish
