I’ve included a recipe below for strawberry coulis (evident coo-lee). Mixed until entirely smooth, after that strained and also sometimes gently sweetened a coulis is usually made from a fruit (though tomato coulis is common) and served over a dessert.
Covering pound cake, lemon cake or ice cream with a strawberry coulis is an alluring combo. Sleek poached pears or peaches as well as thick, rich custards transform into sophisticated desserts when garnished with a coulis.

Secured in fridge freezer bags or airtight containers, coulis could be frozen for months. Now you can enjoy the fruits of summertime over a bowl of vanilla ice cream dripping with strawberry coulis in the deep months of winter months.
