I made a sample cake. It seemed like a really good combo with white choc. mousse and raspberries. But....nothing ever seems to work on the first try as I imagined...

My friend said the raspberries were kind of sour and she didn't like the seeds.

So, how do you get all the seeds out without losing all of the raspberries.

I think I can make it sweeter, but the seeds thing has really stumped me.

I read on the internet about getting a siev, but I'm not sure what kind to buy.

Thanks for any help!!

You can buy a fine mesh strainer. I bought mine at Walmart or Kmart for less than $4. I hate it for everything else, but it's great for straining seeds out of fruit. To make them sweeter just add sugar. I do know there are seedless blackberries, but not sure about raspberries. If you're wanting them "whole" you won't be able to get the seeds out & leave them intact.

whitneysmere, in the recipe section there is a wonderful raspberry filling by merissa. It is the best icon_biggrin.gif I just have a cheap strainer, I strain it twice just to be sure I get all the seeds. HTH icon_wink.gif

I used the raspberry recipe from CC. It took me forever to strain all of the seeds from 3 packages of raspberries. Don't use a "super fine" mesh strainer. You won't get it through. I finally switched to the strainer that is made to fit over the sink to wash and prep veg., etc. and scraped and scaped and scraped with a plastic spoon made like a wooden spoon. It was so thick that I had to scrape the bottom of the strainer to get it into the bowl. There was not one seed that I could tell. All of this was SO worth it!!! People that thought they didn't like raspberries, loved it! They were wanting more. Good Luck......Enjoy

Just make sure to buy a sturdy strainer - I've ruined more than one in my time trying to strain raspberries through it.

Fortunately, I can buy seedless raspberry puree from where I work very cheaply, so I go that route now. I know. I'm spoiled.

If I'm not mistaken, there's an attachment for the Cuisinart food processor just for straining seeds out of pureed raspberries - saw it on Barefood Contessa some time ago and thought hmmm...nifty. But since I don't actually have a Cuisinart food processor, I didn't follow up on it.

Thank you all so much for the great advice!!
I'm going to check out the recipe from Merissa and go buy a good strainer. I love the idea of the Cuisanart, but its a little out of my budget right now. I'll remember it for when I can quit my day job and decorate full time.

Once again, thanks so much!!!
CC rocks!

Try a food mill. There about $25.00 and kitchen shops have them. I think I got mine at a hardware store. Love the food mill. It's so fast and easy for any of my fruit purees.
