What do You Need To Make Homemade Strawberry Sauce?

  • Fresh or frozen strawberries: I usually make this sauce in the strawberry season, but you can also use frozen strawberries that are of good quality. Defrost strawberries just before use.
  • Sugar: Fruit sauces are sweet, but you can vary the amount of sweetness depending on your taste.
  • Vanilla extract: Vanilla and strawberries make a good combination. I add a little vanilla extract to jam or anything else I make with strawberries.
  • Lemon juice: By adding a little lemon juice to your strawberry sauce you prevent it from crystallizing and you balance its sweet taste.

How to Make This Sauce?

First, wash the strawberries and remove the stem. Let the strawberries dry and then dice them finely. The size of the strawberries can be large, after cooking you can puree them in a food processor. Put the chopped strawberries in the pot. Add the sugar and let the strawberries release their own juice for half an hour. After this time, put the pot on low heat. After a few minutes, increase the heat to simmer. Stir occasionally. After about 7 minutes, add vanilla extract and lemon juice. Allow simmering for another 3 minutes. Then turn off the heat and puree the strawberries thoroughly.

Now pass the pureed sauce through a strainer. This separates the strawberry pulp. Of course, I always skip this step because I also like the fruit pulps in the sauce. Allow the sauce to cool slightly, then pour the sauce into a sealed container and refrigerate for a few hours. The sauce is ready to serve with ice cream, pancakes, waffles, or cakes. I do not keep this sauce in the refrigerator for a long time. I consume it in 3 to 4 days and make it again with fresh strawberries if I need to.

 

 

 

FAQs

What Is Strawberry Sauce Made Of?

Strawberry sauce is made with fresh or frozen strawberries, sugar, and a little fresh lemon juice. To make the sauce thicker, you can add a little cornstarch to it.

 

Why Isn’t My Strawberry Sauce Thickening?

If you use frozen strawberries, you are more likely to face this problem. The cooking time and the amount of sugar you add to the sauce have an effect on the thickness of the sauce. Also, adding a small amount of cornstarch can help to thicken the sauce.
