Notes

Variation: Try using other soft fruits like raspberries or blackberries, or a mixture of berries.
Thicken it: If you would like the coulis to be a little thicker, mix 2 teaspoon of cornflour (cornstarch) with enough water to make a thick paste. Return the smooth coulis to a pan, then whisk through the cornflour paste on a high heat, and wait for it to thicken up.
