Strawberry Sauce
  • Description:

    Strawberries and cream are a treat by themselves but, combined, they deliver pure bliss. By simply adding these few ingredients together, you’ll be able to prepare a decadent sauce for any pudding or cake. It’s especially delicious with vanilla ice cream - feel free to add some wafer biscuits too for a bit of crunch. You can also try it as a pancake filling or to top waffles, adding some chunky strawberry pieces as a garnish. Makes about 800 ml.

  • Ingredients:

    375 ml fresh strawberries, chopped
    250 ml Rhodes Strawberry Jam

    250 ml berry juice
    65 ml cornflour

    125 ml cream

  • Method:

    1. In a small saucepan, heat the berry juice, then add the Rhodes Strawberry Jam and stir until melted.
    2. Add the chopped strawberries and simmer until the berries are cooked (about 2 minutes).
    3. Mix the cornflour with a little cold water and stir into the sauce until thickened.
    4. Remove from the heat, add the cream and serve as a dessert sauce.

    Tips and variations:
    Use canned or frozen strawberries if fresh ones are out of season. You can also vary the types of fruit. For instance, hot apricot sauce (using canned apricots or jam) is also a treat as a vanilla ice cream sauce. Or try orange marmalade, combined with orange juice, to pour over chocolate ice cream.
