Seasoning a sweet sauce like a fruit coulis

Sugar is the usual sweet seasoning for a dessert sauce.

Sugar is the usual sweet seasoning. When making a sauce like a raspberry coulis, when the fruit is naturally quite sharp, enough sugar must be used to season the coulis to enhance the flavour of the raspberries and to balance their acidity.

Always consider what the coulis is going to be served with too, when seasoning. If it will be served with something very sweet, the contrast will be too great if the raspberry coulis is under-sweetened and overly sharp.
