Pour into your crust and place the sprinform pan into a larger roasting pan. You will notice that the filling is too thin and liquid like. It's exactly how it should be, DO NOT thicken with flour!

The Topping! I made a mixed berry coulis (sauce) . You will need to make a heavy sugar syrup for this part. Look at the next slide for the recipe.

33

Mix 2 cups sugar with 1 cup water, mix on low heat. Then cook over medium heat for 7 minutes. look at my "how to make hibiscus sorbet" guide as I had made a heavy sugar syrup in that guide.

To make the mixed berries coulis, use frozen berries, they are better for this specific recipe. And cheaper too! I used half a 15 oz pack, so about 7.5 ounces.
