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.
