Strawberry Sauce

I have to admit that this is not really much of a recipe but more of a reminder about how delicious and easy fresh fruit sauces are. They take minutes to prepare and can be used in so many different ways.  Why buy a sauce which is packed full of preservatives when you can make something which tastes far nicer and is better for you and it only takes minutes to prepare?  It is a great way to use up less than perfect fruit and it keeps for ages in the freezer. I freeze mine in ice cube trays and then bag them so that I always have small portions for whatever I decide to make.

The strawberry sauce which I made for this post was for strawberry ripple ice cream which was polished off before I could photograph it. It is also great mixed into a milkshake, served over fresh fruit and yoghurt in the morning, swirled through a meringue mixture or as a dessert sauce. Raspberries work equally well and make a perfect sauce to go with my lemon fridge tart which by the way is such an easy dessert and freezes beautifully (ok, it’s actually my Mum’s recipe – thanks Mum).
