Homemade Strawberry Sauce Goes Great with Ice Cream

Homemade Strawberry Sauce Goes Great with Ice Cream

When the farmer’s market carried buckets of strawberries, I tracked down this recipe for homemade strawberry sauce! I wanted a great way to take advantage of all the berries I had to play with while providing me with more ways to enjoy them. After all, you can only eat so much strawberry shortcake!

I used this recipe for homemade strawberry sauce on ice cream, on yogurt, and on more ice cream. If I had had a pound cake or a cheesecake available, I would have drenched those with this topping too. It is an easy to prepare sauce that ends with an incredible result: this multi-purpose recipe that highlights the strawberries.

In fact, I had made a purchase of Greek yogurt from a brand I don’t normally buy (good sale, I had to try it!). Well, I hated it–but the strawberry sauce saved it! I drizzled some on top of it and voila! it provided that little cup of yogurt with just the right amount of sweetness. I won’t buy that again but I am glad that I was able to salvage it in some way.
