Easy Strawberry Sauce + 12 Strawberry Sauce Uses

Fresh berries are here and the sales to go with them!  I’m so ecstatic as we have been out for several months.  During the summer I tend to stock up on them big time so that we can be enjoying strawberry shortcake long into the winter season.  I snagged some strawberries on sale from one of our local shops last week and this week my fridge is over flowing with raspberries and blackberries waiting their turn in the freezer.  During the summer months one of the most common ways we enjoy our fresh berries is as a sauce.  This Easy Strawberry Sauce is a perfect example of one way to enjoy those fresh berries for the next several months!

Easy Strawberry Sauce

A couple things that I love about this sauce is that it’s only 2 ingredients, can be used with any berry (or most fruits you buy) and it doesn’t require any cooking.  I tend to not cook this recipe as all as it can take away some of the nutrients and really it doesn’t need to be as I’m looking for a sauce not a syrup.  I leave mine a bit chunky as I love getting a solid bite of strawberry with my strawberry sauce but you can opt to puree yours in the blender or food processor if you prefer.  By leaving it chunky I can use just a potato masher or pastry blender.

      Yes. I use it for blackberries and blueberries as well. I tend to leave those berries whole though, especially the blueberries.
