Fresh Strawberry Sauce

Strawberry sauce is a delicious blend of pureed strawberry and sugar. This fresh fruit sauce is packed with a lot of flavour with minimum effort. This beautiful red, thick sauce can transform even the simplest dessert into a special occasion dessert. This sauce can be used as a topping or filling for a cheesecake or can be added to ice creams, cake mix, layered custard or any dessert.
