Strawberry Sauce


I had some strawberries that were a day past their prime for strawberry shortcake. Not wanting to waste the berries, I decided to cook them into a puree, which I served over Cream Cheese & Strawberry Stuffed French Toast. I was so happy with how the sauce turned out, that I will make this again to serve over ice cream, or even on top of strawberry shortcake. Is it even possible to serve too many strawberries? I don't think so!

Step 1

Hull & wash strawberries and coarsely chop them.

In a saucepan, add all of the ingredients, and bring to a rolling boil for 2 to 3 minutes. The sugar, and strawberry pectin will thicken the berries.

If you have an immersion blender, it's very easy to puree the berries in a saucepan. Otherwise, you will need to carefully puree the berries, in batches, in a blender.

If you want to use this right away, pour into a bowl, and place on top of a larger bowl filled with ice cubes. Otherwise, make this a few hours ahead of time and it will thicken nicely.

This is excellent with pancakes, too.
