Fruit sauces are so easy to make from fresh and frozen fruit and this can help on cost too.
28 to 32 ounces of frozen
¼ cup sugar
Thaw strawberries in a pot. (some excess water will remain in the pot from the strawberries thawing.)
When strawberries are thawed add sugar place on low to medium heat mashing and constantly stirring the strawberry mixture. Mix until desire consistency is reached.
You can also let the mixture cool and then place in a blender for a finer consistency. And if you want a thicker consistency you might want to add some cornstarch during the heating and stirring process.
Let cool and the store in the fridge. Or you can also serve it warm.
Serve on pancakes, French toast, waffles, strawberry shortcake, ice cream etc
