Coulis are basically very simple fruit purées, made with raw or cooked fruit, sweetened if necessary. Coulis made with raw fruit will retain more of the vitamin C content, which is otherwise reduced through even the briefest cooking. Almost any soft fruit can be used for an uncooked coulis – kiwi, blackberries, peach, mango and papaya, to name just a few.
