The kids proclaimed it to be the best dessert ever! It was divine, if I might say so myself.
I did not measure anything at all, I just dumped and poured.
Clean, hulled strawberries.
1/2 cup to 1 cup white sugar
Crush the berries with a fork in a pan.
On Med heat, add the sugar and mix till evenly distributed, and you get a nice liquid sauce. Bring to a boil, and simmer for a minute or two till it thickens up.
Let sit for a few minutes to cool down, then pour over the dessert of your choice. Top with a dollop of whipped cream, or ice cream.
This would make a great topping for ice cream, short cake, pancakes or waffles even. It's very versatile, and very very tasty. I loved it because there was a bit of a tart undertone, as well as a nice sweet sauce.
*please ignore the white clumps falling down the sauce. Some of the whipped cream moved around. You can see that it was melting a bit from the heat of the sauce*
