Simple and delicious strawberry sauce. I cut this back to six servings. I threw this together to spoon over buttermilk pancakes. This is EXACTLY the same strawberry topping my Grandma always made to go over ice cream.

Thank you for posting this recipe. Some people like me need, unfortunately, need recipes in a simple and straight-forward manner.

There's nothing quite like fresh strawberries and if I had a penny for everytime I made this, well...let's just say I'd have more than a dollar! Sometimes the simplest recipes are some of the best and you can easily sub Splenda for the sugar and get great results. This is perfect over shortcake, pound cake, ice cream, pancakes, and waffles - the possibilites are endless.

Thank for this. It is simple but some people just need to be reassured they are doing it right. Sorry for Grandma Jones being so rude.

This is just how my mom used to make strawberry topping for strawberry shortcake. This needs to be made up in advance to eating though because after it stands a while the strawberries get softer and sweeter and the juice gets really syrupy. I used superfine sugar for this.

This was good. I added a teaspoon of corn starch to thicken it up a little.

This is EXACTLY what I was looking for! My mother does this for her "Strawberry sauce" for Angle Food Cake topping, Cheesecake topping, ice cream topping, etc! Thanks!
