  • 2 cups strawberries about 1 pint, hulled and rough chopped
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice


  • In a medium saucepan, combine strawberries, sugar and vanilla. Cook over medium-high heat stirring constantly until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat and continue cooking for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until sauce starts to thicken. Mash strawberries as you stir.
  • Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice.
  • Allow to cool before serving. Store in airtight container in refrigerator for up to 7 days.


When the strawberries start to boil, the mixture will be frothy. Keep stirring and the froth will gradually disappear.
