Recipe: Simple Strawberry Sauce

We love this simple fruit sauce over ice cream, pancakes, in oatmeal & anything else you can dream up!

1 pound fresh or frozen Strawberries, cleaned & cut in 1/2
1 tablespoon Water
sweetener of choice: add to taste if needed

Heat berries in a saucepan over medium high heat. Add water if using fresh strawberries. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer with the lid on. Berries will burst and become saucy. Let the sauce cool a bit. Purée in blender and add sweetener to taste if desired.

You might not need any water if using frozen berries as they have a lot of water in them all ready. If you need to thicken your sauce you can use some pectin, arrowroot or strain it through fine mesh sieve.

We love these Sweet Potato Pancakes for breakfast or brunch. Filled with great for you ingredients.

8 servings

1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup mashed sweet potato
2 large eggs, beaten

1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted, plus more for skillet or griddle
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Poke several holes in a sweet potato with a knife, microwave on high for 4-5 minutes.
Let the sweet potato cool a bit, then peel off the skin. Mash the potato with the back of a fork or a potato masher.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon into a bowl.
In another bowl combine the mashed potatoes, eggs, milk, melted butter and vanilla.
Mix together the wet and dry ingredients.
Pulse the batter in a foor processor or blender until just combined.
Heat a pat of butter over medium-high heat on a griddle or large skillet. When it’s sizzling add 1/4 cup batter to the skillet. Cook pancakes for a minute or so until you see the batter bubbling on the top and crispy golden brown on the edges. Carefully flip and cook until done. Continue until done with the batter, adding more butter to the skillet as needed.
Serve immediately with butter and maple syrup.
