Homemade Strawberry Sauce, an easy way to add more delicious flavors to dessert, pastries and breakfast.
- 2 cups of fresh or frozen whole strawberries stem removed
- 1/4 cup fresh pineapple juice
- 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
- 1/3 cup organic sugar
- 1 vanilla bean
- 1 - 2 tbsp Grand Marnier Liquor
Rinse the strawberries, then hull them.
Add whole strawberries, pineapple juice, orange juice, vanilla bean sugar, and Grand Marnier in a large saucepan. Cover and bring to a boil.
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.
Remove from heat and serve with waffles, pancakes, or french toast.
- Use ripe strawberries—you want them to be soft enough to squish easily with your fingers.
- Chop the berries into small pieces that will 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!
