Strawberry sauce

I paired made this sauce last night to go with my no bake berry cheesecake, which you can find here. I based my recipe on Emeril Lagasse’s raspberry sauce from his show Emeril Live, episode on Terrines. I just substituted the raspberries with strawberries. I added a little more sugar since I found that my cheesecake needed just that little more of sweetness to it. This sauce still has a nice tartness to it though.

 Strawberry sauce

Adapted from Emeril Live, 2000

Ingredients:

  • 500g strawberries (2 punnets)
  • 1/3cup caster sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Directions:

  1. Wash strawberries and remove the stems. Roughly chop them up.
  2. Place strawberries, sugar and lemon juice into a saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat and stir it occasionally with a wooden spoon. The strawberries will breakdown after a few minutes. Continue stirring and cooking until sauce thickens (roughly 15 minutes).
  3. Remove from the heat and blend the sauce to remove any clumps. Refrigerate until ready to use.

This would be nice served with a cheesecake, like I did, or on top of some ice cream!
