Star Fruit with Quick Orange Raspberry Sauce


  • 4 star fruit (you can substitute 4 regular or Asian pears, or any similar fresh fruit)
  • Raspberry sauce:
    2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
    1 tablespoon orange marmalade
    2 tablespoons orange juice
    Sugar or artificial sweetener to taste

1. Slice star fruit widthwise to make slices in the shape of stars (if using pears, cut in quarters, remove core, then cut each quarter into several slices).
2. For sauce, add raspberries, orange marmalade, and orange juice to food processor or blender; pulse briefly to blend well. Taste the sauce, and add a pinch or two of artificial sweetener or granulated sugar to desired flavor. Strain mixture to remove the seeds and any orange peel. Refrigerate sauce in covered container until ready to serve.
3. Arrange fresh fruit evenly on four dessert plates. Drizzle some of the raspberry-orange sauce over each portion.
