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. -Joyce Courtney, West Chester, Ohio

"I made this in the microwave, cooking it for about 40 seconds. I did not add any cornstarch, and the sauce still had a nice consistency. It was delicious with chocolate cake and on ice cream."

"Take your pick shortcakes or Ice cream. This sauce will just seal the deal on taste. I made the recipe exactly as written. Next time I will double it. The color is not quite as bright as the photo. Next time I may try adding a dash of red food coloring.
