Strawberry Sauce

Sorry havenbeen around lately but my elder sister is visiting me from Cyprus and we have a lot of catching up to do, so I do not find time to spend on the computer. However, I wanted to communicate today with you to wish you a Happy Easter and post a very easy and quick recipe.

This is perfect on ice creams, crepes, pan cakes or other desserts with cream, especially my Tutti Frutti Yoghurt dessert.  I shall also be posting some recipes soon which this sauce will be great with.   

The cooking time is about 10 – 15 minutes on medium heat and if you  keep mixing it for more time it becomes like a jam.  The amount of sugar is up to you if you want this sauce to be very sweet, increase the amount of sugar. 

If the strawberries are still wet after washing them do not add the water mentioned in the recipe as it will take more time for the sauce to be ready.  The brandy is optional and you can use any other liqueur you like to flavour the sauce.

STRAWBERRY SAUCE


Cooking time: 10 – 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 300 grams of fresh strawberries, cut into small pieces
  • ½ cup of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 shot brandy or other liqueur

Directions

Wash and cut fruit into small pieces.

Heat the butter in a frying pan and saute the strawberries. Add the brandy and mix until the alcohol evaporates.

Add sugar and mix continuously until sauce is thick.

Leave it to cool down and then serve on your favourite dessert. Store remaining sauce in the refrigerator.

    I have been having strawberries from California lately in fruit salad and yesterday with blueberries for breakfast. I remember when I was in Greece in mid May and it was strawberry season…I still think they were the most delicious strawberries I have ever had. I still have to get to Greece when figs are in season. When is that? This strawberry sauce would be delicious on my toast for breakfast this morning:D

    Thanks Ginny, Happy Easter to you as well.

    Val, you have to go to Cyprus as well on one of your trips to Europe. Then you will say that you’ve tasted real strawberries. As you say, the season for strawberries is around May and when they get cheaper I will make my strawberry jam, which is very easy to make as well. The season for figs is around August.

    Lovely sauce! You should offer this to Mike’s Table- he has a round up for strawberries and this would be perfect.
