Believe it or not, it’s strawberry season here in central Florida and strawberries are everywhere! So, in honor of these juicy red beauties I’m sharing our Simple Strawberry Sauce. It’s a delicious topping for pancakes, waffles, vanilla ice cream, cheesecake or whatever you love to put strawberries on!
When I asked John what he would call it he said ‘Simple AWESOME Strawberry Sauce’, because it’s really that good! We made this recipe recently one morning for our pancakes and then enjoyed the leftovers over some homemade waffles later in the week, and it was simply awesome!
The reason we think this strawberry sauce is so awesome is because it’s not too sweet, it’s easy to make and bursting with fresh strawberry flavor!
This juicy red sauce looks so nice in my Grandmother’s antique serving dish from England.
This simple strawberry sauce sure tasted delicious on my healthier pancake the other morning – yum!
Just put the sliced strawberries in a medium saucepan and pour the sugar over them.
Stir the cornstarch and water until dissolved, then pour it over the strawberries and sugar. Mix all ingredients together and cook over medium high heat until it comes to a simmer, stirring gently.
I’m so glad strawberries are in season here in Florida right now! They’re such a pretty red berry and I just love their fresh, bright flavor!
Reduce heat slightly but keep the sauce simmering. Cook approximately 5-7 minutes, or until the sauce is thickened, stirring often.
