Strawberry Sauce

Strawberry Sauce
One of the best things about summer is all of the fresh fruits and berries and it's hard to resist using them to make sauces, syrups and jams to be poured or slathered on anything your heart desires! Since sauces are the easiest to make I make them often and I always enjoy a nice strawberry sauce! The recipe for a strawberry sauce is so easy, it's just fresh strawberries and a sweetener to taste that is simmered in water until the flavour from the strawberries infuses the water and it gets all nice and thick and syrupy. The strawberry sauce can be made in less than 20 minutes and once done you can use it on anything from pancakes to waffles, ice cream, cheesecake, etc. or even just by the spoonful!

How long will it last? If you seal them like jam, by boiling the jars, can you keep it in the cupboard until ready to use?

Hi Kevin, I would like to know that also. If one could boil the jars to make them keep longer. Thank you.

Substituting booze gives a nice adult version ;-)
I bought a lot of reduced strawbs the other week and just stuck them in the fridge with sugar, cherry vodka, plum wine and a touch of Chambord and it's a lovely syrup now. Goes wonderfully with ice-cream.
