Why you'll love this recipe
It's a fast and easy way to make strawberry sauce.
To preserve the fresh strawberry flavour, there is no need to cook this sauce.
There's only 2 ingredients in it!
Only 2 ingredients
- fresh strawberries: rinsed and hulled
- granulated sugar: you can adjust the amount of sugar to your taste
Note: the amount of sugar you'll need is dependent on how sweet your strawberries are.
How to choose strawberries
Look for bright, red strawberries with fresh, green leaves.
Once the berries are picked, they will not ripen any further. (So avoid berries with whiteness near the stem).
Strawberries should be firm and plump.
Give the berries a sniff -- fresh strawberries will emit a sweet scent.
Check for any damaged, bruised berries, which can easily cause the strawberries to grow mold.
Buy local if you can.
Cooking vs. no-cook
I experimented with cooking down the strawberries and found the flavour dissipated quite a bit.
That's why I like this no-cook method.
It's much easier, and you retain that fresh, vibrant strawberry flavour.
How to make it
Place the fresh strawberries and sugar into a blender.
Blend until the mixture is smooth.
How to store
Store in a clean, sterile container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
(Yields 2 Cups).
How to use
Use it in drinks, such as Korean Strawberry Milk, or as a sauce to serve in desserts like Japanese Cotton Cheesecake, or Perfect Swiss Roll Cake.
It's even delicious on toasted Matcha Shokupan.
