Impossible to resist, this smooth fruit sauce requires only 5 ingredients and is ready in just 15 minutes. Perfect for topping frozen yogurt or dipping for shortbread, a good fruit sauce, especially strawberry, is a wonderful addition to your recipe box. Warm it a bit and spread over pancakes for a different syrup. This recipe can easily be made with raspberries or blackberries. Straining the sauce is key to the smooth texture so a small very fine-mesh strainer is needed to get the small strawberry seeds out.

Ingredients

strawberries

1 pound(s), hulled and sliced

light corn syrup

¼ cup(s)

water

¼ cup(s)

table salt

tsp

fresh lemon juice

2 tsp

Instructions

  1. Combine the strawberries, corn syrup, water, and salt in a large saucepan and set over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the berries soften and the mixture forms a sauce, about 10 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice.
  2. Pour the berry mixture through a fine-mesh sieve set over a medium bowl, pressing hard on the solids to extract as much liquid as possible; discard the solids. Cool the sauce to serve at room temperature, or transfer to a covered container; refrigerate up to 1 week. Yields 1/4 cup per serving.
