Strawberry Sauce

My favorite berry is the strawberry, I love the tartness and the texture of it as it hits my lips. As soon as I see strawberries hit the shops I go mad and buy punnet loads, then of course I have strawberry fever in my kitchen and the dilemma as to what to create with them all. This simple strawberry sauce is one of my favorite recipes that I make when ever I can get my hands on ripe strawberries. Its perfect drizzled on pancakes, icecreams in drinks and also poured on porridge.

Strawberry Sauce
A fruity and delicious Strawberry Sauce.
Ingredients:
  • 240g Strawberries hulled and cut into quarters.
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon Juice

Method:

1. Place the strawberries, lemon juice,sugar and water in a pan and bring the mixture to boil.2.Once the mixture starts to boil, reduce the temperature and simmer on a medium heat for 15 minutes until strawberries start to break and look mushy.3. Turn off the heat and sieve the mixture through a stainless steel sieve. If you want clear strawberry syrup than do not push the cooked strawberries through the sieve, just strain and keep the liquid.If you require thick strawberry sauce than push the strawberry through the sieve to get a thicker mixture.(In this recipe I pushed the strawberries through the sieve which is why mixture is thick and not clear.)4. Allow the sauce to cool and then transfer it to a bottle. You can use this in drinks or to drizzle over ice cream. Store the sauce in the fridge.
