Fresh Strawberry Sauce

 Fresh Strawberry Sauce
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
