How to Make the Best Strawberry Sauce Recipe

Strawberry Sauce is summer food at its finest and most simplistic. This fresh strawberry sauce recipe only requires just four ingredients (well, five if you count water) and very little hands-on prep time. Plus, it has zero added sugar.

Choose Organic Strawberries

The best produce comes from the best growers. Unless you can find a locally grown organic strawberry field that you can pick yourself, look for organic. Strawberries are on #1 on the Dirty Dozen list by EWG. Which means lots of pesticides and chemicals are typically used to grow these little berries.

How to Store Strawberry Sauce

Oh! And once it’s made, strawberry sauce stores nicely in a mason jar in the fridge for about 4 days. But to be honest, it never lasts that long over here. I may need to start making a double batch.
