A new way to enjoy fruit

Mom's fucsia strained raspberries:

Push raspberries through a fine sieve with a pestle so only the seeds remain.. Discard those seeds and you are left with a succulent, bright nectar.
My Parisian aunt uses a french Moulinette for this process.

Et Voila! An antioxidant rich smoothie-like texture that can be drunk straight (my personal choice,) frozen and blended into a smoothie, poured over ice cream or yogurt, dripped delicately over dessert... endless possibilities, this stuff is amazing.
I mmmmmm'd after every bite.

Here's to moms, aunts & grandmas everywhere for their tried and true ways of keeping our food and us homemade, down to earth, simple, and fail-safe.
