Ingredients for ¾ cup Cloudberry Puree
340gramsof frozen unsweetened cloudberries
50gramsor ¼ cup granulated white sugarto taste (I used ½ cup and 2 tablespoons sugar)
1-2tablespoonfreshly squeezed lemon juice
Instructions for Cloudberry Puree
Thaw unsweetened frozen cloudberries in fine meshed strainer placed over large bowl or in a chinois overnight
Force juice from berries by gently pressing berries with back of spoon or by using the conical chinois plunger until only seeds and very dry fibrous pulp remain; discard pulp and seeds
Add white sugar and lemon juice (which will brighten the colour and heighten the flavour: I didn’t add it, but would next time)
Cover and store in refrigerator up to a week, or freeze up to a year.
Straining the berries is lengthy; it is a process that takes 2-3 hours after thawed unless you want to work up a sweat and just go for it. I pushed pulp through every 15 minutes next morning finishing effortlessly in 2-3 hours
I used 1020 grams of cloudberries; the yield was 3 and 1/3 cups
