FRESH STRAWBERRY SAUCE
I try to cook seasonally, using fresh ingredients when I can. Spring is probably my favorite time of year to cook with fresh ingredients. Fresh berries, citrus fruits, spring greens are all so refreshing. You may have guessed that strawberries are a favorite of mine since I have so many strawberry recipes on this site for you.
Oftentimes, if you have a couple of staples on hand you can create a great dessert in minutes when unexpected guests visit. I like to keep some of this Strawberry Sauce, or Strawberry Topping, ready for just those occasions. It is such a versatile sauce made with just four ingredients. Furthermore, you can use fresh or frozen strawberries to make it. I serve it hot or cold and recommend using it in these ways.
- Eat it over ice cream or frozen yogurt
- Over Pound Cake or Angel Food Cake (with or without ice cream)
- Or on waffles or pancakes (with cool whip!) or biscuits.
- It’s great on plain cheesecake too.
