Fresh Strawberry Sauce

Fresh Strawberry Sauce ready for strawberry shortcakes!
I can't resist all the fresh strawberries, although this recipe works great with blueberries too. It's real simple, just a few ingredients and you have fresh strawberry sauce. A simple sauce to drizzle over about a million things. One of my favorite things to do is to whip something up out of nothing.

Fresh Strawberries

  • 1 lb fresh strawberries, cut into quarters
  • 1/4 cup sugar or sugar substitute
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1 good squeeze of fresh lemon

Stir all ingredients together in a medium sauce pan and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Reduce heat to medium and cook for another 15 minutes until thickened. Let cool and refrigerate.  

A million uses:
  • Spoon over ice cream, pancakes or waffles and add a dollop of whipped cream 
  • Drizzle over cheesecake or angle food cake
  • How about a trifle with layers of pound cake and whipped cream
  • Make a smoothie
  • Of course ...strawberry shortcake
