Simple and delicious strawberry sauce. I cut this back to six servings. I threw this together to spoon over buttermilk pancakes. This is EXACTLY the same strawberry topping my Grandma always made to go over ice cream. Read More

There's nothing quite like fresh strawberries and if I had a penny for everytime I made this well...let's just say I'd have more than a dollar! Sometimes the simplest recipes are some of the best and you can easily sub Splenda for the sugar and get great results. This is perfect over shortcake pound cake ice cream pancakes and waffles - the possibilites are endless. Read More

Thank for this. It is simple but some people just need to be reassured they are doing it right. Sorry for Grandma Jones being so rude. Read More

This is just how my mom used to make strawberry topping for strawberry shortcake. This needs to be made up in advance to eating though because after it stands a while the strawberries get softer and sweeter and the juice gets really syrupy. I used superfine sugar for this. Read More

This was good. I added a teaspoon of corn starch to thicken it up a little. Read More

I used frozen strawberries instead of fresh one. It still turned out good. @Grandma Jones, sometimes you just need reassurance that you are going about the correct way of making strawberry sauce and others truly do not know how to make this dessert. Please do not assume everyone is proficient at all cooking (and non-cooking) methods. Even a child must first learn how to boil water before they can cook a hard-boiled egg. Read More
