What’s in the sauce?

The main ingredient in this recipe is strawberries. You can use fresh or frozen berries, depending on what’s available in your area. You can also try using other fruits, such as peaches or nectarines, instead of strawberries. Make sure they are chopped into small pieces before adding them to your food processor or blender. This will help them blend better with other ingredients.

How to use homemade strawberry sauce?

You can use this sauce topping for desserts like ice cream cake or even pancakes! It also tastes great on top of waffles or pancakes with a sprinkle of powdered sugar on top! If you’re feeling adventurous, try adding whipped cream and chocolate chips to make an amazing milkshake! Or just spread some on toast with some butter! I love mixing this with plain Greek yogurt and adding granola on top of it. The possibilities are endless!

How to make the strawberry sauce

Homemade Strawberry Sauce is delicious and easy to make, and you can use it on just about anything! Do you want to know how to make Homemade Strawberry Sauce? It’s easy— first, get the ingredients and follow the steps below:

Ingredients

  • Fresh or frozen whole strawberries, washed and stems removed if fresh.
  • Fresh Pineapple Juice: regular juice if lighter. If using concentrated juice, add a little bit of water to dilute it a bit.
  • Fresh Orange Juice: fresh squeezed or store-bought is fine.
  • Organic Sugar: I like using this sugar to make baked goods and fruit compote.
  • Vanilla Bean: I know it is expensive, but it is worth it. You can also use Vanilla Extract or Vanilla Paste.
  • Grand Marnier Liquor: find it in most liquor stores. The alternative is Brandy or Dark Rum (Barbancourt preferably).

Directions:

  1. Rinse the strawberries, then hull them.
  2. Add whole strawberries, pineapple juice, orange juice, vanilla bean sugar, and Grand Marnier in a large saucepan. Cover and bring to a boil.
  3. Once the mixture starts to boil, uncover and lower the heat. Let strawberries cook slowly until they have released their juices and the sauce is thick.
  4. Remove from heat and serve with waffles, pancakes, or french toast.

Notes and Tips

Strawberry sauce is one of the easiest things to make yourself, and it’s so much better than store-bought. Here are some tips for making it:

  • Use ripe strawberries—you want them soft enough to squish easily with your fingers.
  • Chop the berries into pieces that fit in a food processor or blender.
  • Make sure you remove all stems and leaves from the strawberries before processing or blending! This will significantly impact how your finished sauce tastes (and looks).
  • Use fresh lemon juice and sugar, not store-bought lemon juice or sugar (store-bought versions are often too acidic or sweet).
  • If you want your sauce to be smooth, strain it through a fine-mesh strainer before serving!

This strawberry sauce is not hard to make, and if you have the ingredients on hand, it is probably quicker to make than running out to the store to get ketchup. And the next time you make homemade pancakes—or waffles—you will be grateful that you made the sauce at home.
