Strawberry Sauce

It’s strawberry season! Yesterday, I saw a post on Facebook that strawberry picking is now open at a local farm. You could go in and pick your own or buy a pre-picked basket. I think they were selling them for $4/pint.

Fresh strawberries are SO GOOD! Nothing beats local summer strawberries. I miss eating them in the winter when all the strawberries are imported from other countries. You can taste how fresh they are with each scrumptious bite.

With all these plentiful strawberries, I needed some yummy recipes to use them up. I made this delicious Strawberry Sauce that is so good that you’ll want to eat it right from the jar. And you can, but there is so many other ways you can use it. Hello, ice cream sundaes!

I like that it’s not over-the-top sweet. The sugar does not overpower the flavor of the strawberries.
