Sieving Out Raspberry Seeds

Fresh raspberries have a heavenly flavor and gorgeous color, but in certain dishes, the seeds get in the way. Using just a sieve and the back of a spoon, you can get the essence of the fruit and leave the seeds behind.

For seedless raspberry puree, place fresh or frozen raspberries in a sieve. With the back of a spoon or rubber spatula, mash raspberries against the side and bottom of the sieve. Continue to mash to get as much juice as possible.
