Strawberry Sauce

My kids absolutely love their pancakes, waffles, french toast, or crepes topped with strawberry sauce (they get this love from their Papa Loren, who LOVES strawberry sauce too). I made a batch this weekend and needless to say, they LOVED it! This sauce takes minutes to make and will make your breakfast treats taste so amazing. It’s really wonderful on top of ice cream too.

Heat the water, sugar, corn starch, lemon zest, and juice in a saucepan over medium heat, whisk until well combined. Add the sliced strawberries and stir often, mashing some of the berries, for 5-7 minutes. Remove from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy.

    This looks great. I wonder how the calories compares to (real) maple syrup which I tend to drown my pancakes in :-) ? Do you know?

    This looks lovely! Do you know if I could just substitute other berries (such as blueberries)?

    I noticed the lemon with the ingredients – is lemon juice part of the recipe? I personally love to add it to sauces…

    I’m making waffles this weekend and now I”m thinking this sauce needs to go on them in lieu of syrup!

    You think this could be frozen with no problem? I’m guessing, yes…What do you think?

      Amy,

      It never lasts long enough to freeze but I am guessing, yes. Let me know how it turns out.

      Cheers,
      Pam
