Ice Cream Time : DIY Strawberry sauce

Tomorrow is National Strawberry Sundae day ! So grab some local berries and make this sauce to Celebrate with your family…. Lisa

1 pound fresh strawberries, stemmed and halved

1/2 cup granulated sugar 

Pinch table salt 

1 tablespoon cornstarch 

1 teaspoon lemon zest plus 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

Ice cream, for serving

Crushed salted peanuts, for topping 

Add the strawberries, sugar and salt to a small saucepan. Mix the cornstarch with 1/2 cup water in a small bowl and add it to the saucepan. Slowly heat the mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it comes to a simmer, about 5 minutes. Lower the heat so it’s at a very gentle simmer and cook, stirring frequently, until the sauce thickens, about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the lemon zest and juice and let cool.

Perfect to serve over you favorite Vanilla Ice cream.
