I have made a coulis with strawberries and raspberries, 500gms of each with half a cup of sugar and the juice of one lemon. I boiled it for 15 minutes, then pureed it, put it through a fine sieve to remove all seeds, then bottled it and sealed with a tamper-proof lid. My question is, how do I make this coulis shelf stable, are the ingredients I am using enough to ensure this will be fine until opened, then into the fridge?

    You have not made this shelf stable at all, boiling for 15 minutes, then bottling it will allow foodborne pathogens in your coulis. You need to use a canning method, probably pressure canning as you likely don't have enough acid for water bath canning. This question has some details. – GdD Jan 18 '18 at 9:14

I recommend freezing portions of your finished coulis into some sandwich or freezer bags, and pulling them as you require.
