Ingredients

  • 500 gm strawberries fresh
  • 1/3 cup sugar granulated
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice freshly squeezed

Instructions

  • Cut 6 medium sized strawberries into quarters lengthways and set aside.
    Roughly slice the remainder.
  • In a medium non-reactive saucepan*, combine sliced strawberries, sugar and fresh lemon juice.
    Place the pan over a low-medium heat and bring the mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally. The strawberries will naturally release their juice.
  • Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Roughly mash the strawberries with a potato masher.
    Add the 6 quartered strawberries which you have set aside.
  • Stir and simmer for 5 minutes more.
    Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.*

Notes

*Aluminium, copper and cast iron pans are all reactive; this means they react with acidic foods, causing your food to take on a metallic flavour.
*The sauce is delicious served warm over cold ice cream.
*You can make this strawberry sauce up to 3 days in advance; cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
