All Purpose Strawberry Sauce

I make this type of sauce with all different fruit. It works really well with berries and taste really good on pancakes, waffles, french toast, ice cream and cake. It's really easy to make and will be ready in no time at all! Early summer the perfect time of year to try this with strawberries. I put this sauce over of gluten free waffles for a really quick, delicious breakfast. We don't eat frozen waffles very often but a brand both Tom and I like are Van's Natural Foods waffles. They are gluten free, although you would never know.

I like Van's products because you can find them in a wide variety of grocery stores and stores such as Target. You don't always have to go to a health food store to find gluten free products.

Strawberry Sauce
Makes 4 servings

1 pint of strawberries -chopped
1/4 cup water
1/2 lemon-juiced
1-3 tbsp powder sugar
1 tbsp mint-chopped **optional

You can add more or less sugar depending on how sweet the strawberries you are using. Add 1 tbsp at a time and add more to taste.

1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, add strawberries, water and lemon juice. Cook until mixture come to a low boil. Turn the heat down and simmer for 10-15 minutes until the strawberries are soft and start to become a puree texture. Add in as much sugar as desired. Pour over your favorite breakfast or dessert and enjoy!
