Simple, quick, and tasty! I made it healthier by substituting Truvia for the sugar, and because I did not have fresh strawberries on hand (which is rare!) I had to use frozen. What a nice topping for the coconut pineapple light ice cream we have in the freezer!

I thought this tasted pretty good. I made a 1/2 recipe to test it. I probably didn't use quite as much lemon as suggested, just a few squeezes. This was very quick to make and would taste good on just about anything breakfast or dessert. I put it on a homemade belgian waffle from this site with whipped cream and it was great. I am some what partial to the top rated strawberry sauce on here, that has a little less sugar and some added vanilla, but this will definitely get eaten up. Thank you

This is an excellent sauce recipe! I served it with cut-up fresh strawberries over home made pound cake, and the dessert was a total hit! I didn't mash the berries to a fine pulp, but left quite a few chunks. Very yummy!

Excellent, BUT... I only used half the sugar called for. Can't imagine how cloyingly sweet this would have been had I used any more! Also, I used strawberries I had frozen whole. I thawed them, sliced most, but left a good many of them whole. It looked pretty that way! For vivid ruby-red color, I added a few drops of red food coloring.

I made this for a cheesecake topping and it was so delicious. I chopped the strawberries in my blender and it made the most delicious sauce. Freezes great. Marian was my mother's name. Maybe that's why it was so good.

Swweet and very good. I used it as a topping for pancakes.

Easy to make. Used as a topping for Belgian waffles. Wow! Excellent. Pretty sweet, though. I'd consider backing off the sugar called for.
