- 16 ounces (1 pound) fresh strawberries, hulled and chopped medium
- 1/4 cup water
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1. In a small sauce pan over low heat, add in the strawberries, water and sugar. Stir to combine. Leave simmering uncovered for 15 minutes.
- 2. After 15 minutes, smash the strawberries with the back of a wooden spoon to break them up. Continue simmering over low heat for another 15-30 minutes, until desired thickness is achieved. After it is done cooking, stir in the lemon juice.
- 3. You can serve warm or cold. Will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for 2 weeks, and can be frozen for 1 year.
This can be made with frozen strawberries as well. Just start off with 1/8 cup of water, since moisture will come off the frozen strawberries. Add more water if needed.
