I have a recipe for a Raspberry Torte, which has the following directions:

Combine 1 cup sugar and 3 TBs cornstarch in a saucepan and mix well.  Add 20 oz. of frozen raspberries.  Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.

Does this seem reasonable to you?? How can you bring something to a boil without any liquid??

This came from a "Daily In Box" eZine I subscribe to: the recipe is from a Junior League sponsored cookbook called "Great Lakes Effects: Buffalo Beyond Winter and Wings"

Any sugestions?

The best thing to do is ask Steve aka Tuzilla.

The sugar, the cornstarch and the heated raspberries will create liquid to boil.

Leah is correct. Sugar will liquefy when heated with the moisture from the berries. Good luck!

If the raspberries are frozen-there's your liquid right there.Just don't substitute fresh or canned,though.Tell us how it comes out and please give the recipe-sounds good...

exactly. The sugar will melt and the berries will juice up. Don't heat it too fast or you will burn the sugar.
