Strawberry Sauce

Yield: 6 servings


  • 2 cups fresh (or frozen, thawed) strawberries, washed and hulled
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/3 brandy
  • red food coloring (optional)


Place the strawberries in a medium-sized saucepan, add the water and lemon juice, and bring to a boil over moderate heat. When the strawberries are soft, remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.

Pour the mixture into a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Strain through a sieve, then return the mixture to the saucepan. Gradually stir in the cornstarch, brandy, and food coloring. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until thickened.
