Reviews for Fresh Strawberry Sauce
"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.JanieTaste Of Home Volunteer FE"
