- 250g fresh strawberries
- 1/4 cup white granulated sugar
- 1 tsp lemon zest
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
This sauce is really for those who are like me- have a sweet tooth. I love me some sweet treats 🙂 It’s a pretty quick and easy recipe. All you need are the strawberries, sugar, lemon juice and lemon zest. You can have this with ice-cream, some cake, on pancakes, crumpets, or any baked goodies you wish. So let’s get to it. Please note, if you find it a bit too sweet for your fancy you are more than welcome to reduce the amount of sugar.
- With your ingredients ready; strawberries (250g), sugar (1/4 cup), lemon zest (1 tsp) and lemon juice (1 tbsp), wash and cut your strawberries in half. Place in saucepan, add sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice.
- Mix everything together, cover pot and let it boil for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes use a potato masher to mash up the strawberries. You however want to leave the sauce chunky so don’t over-do the mashing!
- After mashing up your strawberries, cover your saucepan again and simmer for another 5 minutes. And there you have it, your chunky strawberry sauce is ready. If you want it smooth you can always puree it using a blender.
