This is a super easy, super simple homemade strawberry sauce I've made a few times in the last year to top waffles and pancakes. I was able to get a pic of it last time so I can finally post it here. :) I use frozen strawberries for this, making it even easier. I use vanilla sugar to make this sauce extra tasty. For a special treat, top homemade waffles with this strawberry sauce and whipped cream. Or try it with vanilla ice cream!
Homemade Strawberry Sauce
adapted from Nature's Nurture
2 tablespoons sugar or vanilla sugar (or sweetener of choice)
1 teaspoon cornstarch
3-4 tablespoons water
1. Add the strawberries and sugar to a medium-sized heavy saucepan. Heat at medium-low until the sugar melts, then turn up the heat to medium and bring to a boil. Once it boils, remove from heat and lightly mash the strawberries using a potato masher, or a fork or wooden spoon.
2. Return to heat and bring back to a boil, then dissolve cornstarch into the water (using a small jar or air-tight container) and add to the pot. Stir the sauce and continue boiling for another couple minutes until it thickens. Serve warm over pancakes, waffles, or ice cream.
