Two Dessert Recipes for Berries and Kirsch

Berries are slowly coming back into season. What a great way to use them and surprise your family.

We cook one recipe on the BBQ. Of course, you can also cook it in the oven. Note that either of these recipes is also great with any summer fruit.

Feel free to browse other recipes from our Retro Recipes series. You might also liked our Dessert recipes here.

Berry and Kirsch Coulis

This is so easy and SOooo versatile – we use it a lot. It could also be made with peaches, peacharines, nectarines, plums etc with any suitable liqueur.

oodles of mixed berries such as blackberries, mulberries, strawberries, red currants, etc kirsch

Hull the strawberries and chop all berries into small pieces. Reserve the juice. Place berries and juice into a container and add a small amount of Kirsch. The amount of kirsch depends on the amount of berries. You need just enough to flavour the berries without overwhelming them. Leave the berry mixture to sit in the fridge for a couple of hours – more juice will form.

Serve the coulis as is, or blend it before serving to make a uniform coulis. Serve the coulis around baverois, small puddings, Crème Brûlée, crème caramel, or whatever.

Place the berries with a little sugar in a BBQ-friendly container. Place on the BBQ, and allow to bubble away until you are ready to eat. Watch that it does not dry out. Serve with cream or icecream. YUM.
