Keyword: baking, breakfast, dessert, sauce, snack


  • 4 lbs strawberries hulled & halved
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 lemon juiced (about 3 Tbl of lemon juice)


  • Place ingredients in a pot over medium-high heat.
  • Stirring constantly, bring it to a gentle boil and cook until strawberries are soft (about 5-6 minutes).
  • Once soft, mash the strawberries.
  • Pour over a mesh strainer into a bowl and use a spoon to make sure you get as much juice as possible out of the fruit (save the pulp).
  • Scoop out as much foam as possible and pour the sauce back into your pot. Add 1/4 cup of the pulp and boil again for 3 minutes over medium-high heat.
  • Skim off any new foam and let cool before placing into the fridge to thicken up (I warmed it up a bit before putting on pancakes).
