  • 2 cups strawberries diced
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup white granulated sugar


  • Add all ingredients to a medium size sauce pan. Heat over medium heat and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.
  • Once the mixture is boiling, reduce heat and allow to simmer for about 15 minutes, while stirring throughout.
  • The berries will soften and will make juice.
  • After the 15 minutes, remove the pot from the heat and mash the strawberries to desired consistency. Cover the pot and allow to cool for about 10 minutes. Spoon into a jar and store covered in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
  • Enjoy!



Use about 1 pound of strawberries to get the 2 cups of diced strawberries.
