I have a fondness for strawberries and love keeping a jar of this on hand.  Or sometimes I dress it up a bit and go for the Strawberry Margarita Dessert Sauce.  

How to Make Strawberry Sauce:

  1. Hull and cut strawberries. About 1 pound of strawberries will give the 2 cups needed for the recipe. 
  2. Add the strawberries to a medium size saucepan. Heat over medium heat. 
  3. Add in the remaining ingredients and stir to coat the strawberries in the sugar mixture. The strawberries will start to make juice. Once you can see the juice start to boil, reduce the heat to low and continue to stir while the strawberries cook. 
  4. After cooking for 15 minutes remove the saucepan from the heat,  and mash the strawberries to desired consistency. 
  5. Cover the strawberry sauce and allow to cool for about 10 minutes. 
  6. Pour the strawberry sauce into a container that you can seal and store in the refrigerator.
