This time of year is all about the berries! If you have a bunch of strawberries then I have a recipe for you! This recipe is super easy and it tastes amazing on ice cream. The key to making this recipe incredibly easy is either a high powered blender or a food processor. I've had a Vitamix for years and I love it. It was a splurge on a daily QVC deal quite a few years ago and it's still going strong today.
Ok, here's what you'll need!
-approximately 2lbs of strawberries (you can halve or double the recipe to suit your needs)
-1 cup sugar
-juice of 1/3 lemon
Wash the strawberries and remove the green tops. Process the berries in your blender or food processor. Throw the berries into a pot, add the sugar and lemon juice. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer until the puree thickens to the point where it sticks to the back of a spoon. Let cool and store in an airtight jar in the fridge.
Top on ice cream and enjoy!
