4 Ingredients: Strawberry Sauce

Raise your hands if you have watched strawberries go bad in your fridge. <raises hand> This happens in my house way more often than I’d like to admit. And I got tired of it. So now I give a new pint or two no mate than two days in the fridge, and if no one’s touching the berries, they turn into this super easy, super tasty, quick sauce that we then HOUSE in no time at all over yogurt or ice cream! Winner! Here you go.

* 1qt fresh strawberries, sliced and cut into small pieces
* 1/3C sugar
* 1/2 a large lemon, juiced
* 1/4C water

Add all ingredients to a large saucepan and stir to combine. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the sauce thickens.

Reduce heat and continue stirring until the strawberries cook down and soften and the sauce reduces.

Remove from heat and allow to cool, then transfer to a glass storage container. Keep refrigerated. Will keep for about a week.
