Paleo is a good guideline for the many foods that my boss and I try to avoid, but sometimes people still use ingredients which aren't, for lack of a better word, "kosher" for either our allergies or our interpretation of paleo (um, corn starch? really?) So with that in mind I set about to find a recipe for a raspberry sauce to put on a pork dish I was making for lunch. Easy right? Wrong.

And so... I was forced to make my own. And of course, like all things I do it was really easy, used only 4 ingredients plus water! Whee!

Please note: Without the thickener (flour/cornstarch) the sauce will be a little bit more liquid then you are used to, next time we make it we are going to try it with cream of tarter - so if you get a chance to test this let us know how it goes!


Package of raspberries
3-4 tbsps of lime juice (depending on how much you like lime)
1/4 cup water
A plop of Ghee (clarified butter
like this one)
Splash of cinnamon (optional)

Put the first 3 ingredients in a small sauce pan and bring the water to a boil. Let them boil for about 15 minutes until the raspberries dissolve. Add a plop of ghee and mix in. Let it boil some more. Add a splash of cinnamon. Enjoy!
