THIS SAUCE was first served to me by my mother, who was a wonderful cook.
During these months when strawberries are so plentiful, I like to keep this sauce on hand so I can improvise a delightful dessert for just the two of us. It's delicious over ice cream or angel food cake.

For a delightful dessert, Sharon Mensing needs only a handful of ingredients to fix this unusual fruit fondue. "Use grapes, bananas, strawberries and angel food cake cubes as dippers," she suggests from Greenfield, Iowa.
In Harkers Island, North Carolina, Judith Waxman prepares a tart and tangy fruit sauce that's excellent over pound cake or ice cream. "I've served this rosy-colored mixture many times and gotten rave reviews from friends and family," she assures.
"I do a lot of cooking and baking in spring and early summer when the rhubarb is tender," writes Lorraine Guzek of Thief River Falls, Minnesota. "This tangy-sweet sauce is delicious over ice cream and so easy to make."
Chock-full of berries and rhubarb, this pretty cobbler is the perfect finale for a dinner for two. Pecans in the topping and the delicious dessert sauce make it extra special. —Lily Julow, Lawrenceville, Georgia
