This fresh strawberry sauce is pretty much just the essence of summer… it’s so fresh and delicious and full of juicy berries! I made this for the first time a few weeks ago and I’ve been looking for any excuse to make it again and again! This sauce is super easy to make and ready in just a few minutes, and is super versatile, too! It works great as a syrup for waffles or pancakes or as a topping for ice cream or yogurt. And I can’t wait to share with you my favorite way to eat it later in the week… stay tuned!
For now, it’s pretty safe to assume that I’ll be sneaking spoonfuls of this delicious sauce any chance I get!
Fresh Strawberry Sauce
3 cups chopped strawberries
1/4 – 1/2 cup sugar (depending on the sweetness of your strawberries)
1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 tablespoon corn starch
2 tablespoons water
Add the strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice to a medium pot and stir well. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat. While the mixture is heating, dissolve the corn starch in the water and whisk until smooth. Add the corn starch mixture to the strawberry mixture and stir well. Let simmer 2-3 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Remove and let cool slightly before serving. Store in the refrigerator.
