Strawberry Sauce



  1. Wash strawberries, remove stems, and slice.
  2. Set aside ⅔ cup of the sliced strawberries.
  3. Combine the remaining 1⅔ cups strawberries, sugar, and vanilla in a saucepan.
  4. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to simmer, cook uncovered stirring occasionally. The mixture will sizzle for a while, but then juice will begin to form.
  5. Stirring occasionally; mash a few strawberries with a wooden spoon or heat-proof spatula to help produce the syrup.
  6. Cook until sauce barely thickens, about 15 minutes.
  7. Remove from heat. Note that the sauce will thicken up slightly as it cools.
  8. Using an immersion blender or regular blender, puree the cooked sauce.
  9. After the sauce has completely cooled, mix in the ⅔ cup of freshly sliced strawberries.
  10. Serve.
  11. Store unused portions in refrigerator.


Makes about 1¼ cups sauce.
