- 4 cups of strawberries, fresh or thawed from frozen
- 1/4 – 1/2 cup sugar, or to taste
In a saucepan, place washed and cut strawberries, add 1/4 cup sugar and cook over medium heat, mashing strawberries with a potato masher or back of fork. As strawberries warm up, they will release their juices. Bring mixture to a boil, then remove from heat. If the sauce needs to be sweeter, add remaining sugar and stir until sugar is completely dissolved. Cool and store in an air-tight container until needed.
