Supreme Strawberry Topping


  • 1 pint fresh strawberries
  • ⅓ cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Wash strawberries and remove stems; cut large berries in half or roughly chop them.


  • Step 2

    Combine strawberries, sugar, and vanilla in a saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. The mixture will sizzle for a while, but then juice will begin to form. Continue stirring; mash a few strawberries with a wooden spoon or heat-proof spatula to help produce the syrup. Cook until sauce thickens, about 15 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Remove from heat. In a blender, puree about 1/3 of the sauce, then mix back into remaining topping. Store in refrigerator.

  • Cook's Note:

    Decide for yourself how much topping you want. For each additional pint of strawberries, add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 1/3 cup of sugar.
