Megans Cookin: Seedless Chocolate Raspberry Dessert Sauce

Seedless Chocolate Raspberry Dessert Sauce

I went to Costco a couple of weeks ago and saw these lovely berries. I threw a crate into my shopping cart dreaming of the breakfasts I would have in the coming week. When I got home, to my surprise and stupidity, there were 6 baskets of fruit instead of the 3 I was thinking of. But that turned out to be a good thing because I had just came across a recipe from Charlotte at Canning Jars Etc

Chocolate Raspberry Sauce!

I've used it on ice cream,

In my Daring Baker Frangipane Tart challenge,

As a plating decoration for my Molten Chocolate cakes
(I know know, sloppy plating. I was hurting by this time)

and I've used it at as a gift, or actually... a give away prize.

I only got 5 jars instead of the usual 8 jars because I strained my mixture. I decided at the last minute I didn't like it with seeds. This produces a wonderful fruity sauce with a hint of chocolate. Perfect for many things. But the truth be told, I want to make another batch for gifts. I love making homemade goodies to give at the Christmas season. Much more personal and let's face it, cheaper and funner!

Chocolate Raspberry Sauce

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
5 cups crushed raspberries
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 package powdered pectin
7 cups sugar

Combine the first 4 ingredients. Bring to boil over high heat. Add sugar, stirring until dissolved. Bring to a rolling boil. Boil for one minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim foam, if necessary. Strain seeds. Fill hot jars, leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Add lids and process 10 minutes in a water bath.

High altitude instructions
1,001 - 3,000 feet : increase processing time by 5 minutes
3,001 - 6,000 feet : increase processing time by 10 minutes
6,001 - 8,000 feet : increase processing time by 15 minutes
8,001 - 10,000 feet : increase processing time by 20 minutes

I think you did the right thing removing the seeds! That opens up the sauce to so many uses, which you already know about!

I bet that sauce is fantastic.

Just this past weekend I made a chocolate peanut butter ganache that was amazing. Made a chocolate lover out of me, sorta. :)

Is this the sauce you gave me a long time ago? Or was that strawberry chocolate sauce? Either way, this sauce looks good! I'm hoping to pick raspberries on Monday, so I'll keep this recipe in mind.

Wow that sauce sounds fabulous. I bet you could just eat it with a spoon!

There it is! I was waiting on this, and I'm happy it's so easy and quick to make. I'll have to try this, and of course maybe try a different fruit with a little tinkering :)
