There is nothing like picking your own strawberries. Warm from the sun, fresh picked strawberries have the best flavour. Preserve that flavour by cooking the strawberries with a bit of sugar. Like my microwave Strawberry Jam, this super simple Strawberry Sauce is bursting with sweet, strawberry flavour!
You will only need 3 ingredients for this sauce recipe.
The ingredients you will need for this sauce are exactly the same as the jam. However the ratios are different and cooking time is way less. You will need:
- Lemon juice
Can I use frozen strawberries?
Absolutely! In fact, when I made this Strawberry Sauce I use a combination of fresh and frozen because that’s what I had. Frozen strawberries could contain more liquid and in the case you wouldn’t need to add the water to thin the sauce.
How to make Strawberry Sauce.
Making this sweet sauce is a breeze. In 20 minutes, you will have the kitchen filled with the heady fragrance of strawberries.
- Hull and chop the strawberries.
- Cook in a saucepan with sugar and lemon juice until softened.
- Puree with immersion blender.
- For a really smooth sauce – pass through a sieve.
And that’s it!
What if I don’t have an immersion blender?
If you don’t have an immersion blender you could one of 3 things.
- Simply crush the strawberries with a potato masher for a chunky sauce.
- Wait until the sauce has cooled and puree it in a stand blender or food processor.
- Push the softened strawberries mixture through a sieve.
Can this strawberry topping be frozen?
This delicious sauce can be frozen for later. Freeze in smaller quantities so that you can just remove the amount that you want. Defrost in the microwave or on the stovetop over gentle heat. The solids and liquids may separate a little so stir well to combine.
