Strawberry Sauce**

My family loves a side dish of strawberry sauce any time of day. It is heavenly on pancakes, waffles, yogurt, and ice cream.

Makes 2 ¼ cups

1 quart coarsely chopped fresh organic strawberries
2 tablespoons organic maple syrup or maple sugar
1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
1 tablespoon cold water

OR

1 quart frozen organic strawberries
2 tablespoons organic maple syrup or maple sugar
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon arrowroot powder
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon cold water

  1. Place the strawberries in a 1-quart saucepan with maple syrup. Stir and simmer for about 5 minutes, or until strawberries are soft and juicy.
  2. Dissolve arrowroot in a small bowl with cold water. Stir into strawberries for a minute or two, or until sauce thickens.
  3. If desired add more maple syrup or maple sugar for a sweeter taste.
