"So easy and great flavor! I use 12 oz. bag of organic frozen berries and have to add very little water after straining seeds. The straining step is tedious but worth it for fresh sauce with few ingredients. I use it for cheesecake and key lime squares. Add a few fresh berries and you have a beautiful and tasty dessert."

"I served this over angel food and ice cream with a few fresh raspberries. It was delicious! I agree the straining was a bit of a chore. I ended up adding about 3/4 c. of water to make the 2 cups but the flavor was still there."
