Made crepes with chocolate mousse. Wanted to add a strawberry sauce that I could drizzle on top, so I made this recipe, but then pur?ed it. I added just a little more lemon to give it a bite, otherwise followed the recipe. After plating the crepes I poured the warm pur?e into a metal creamer, added about a tablespoon of heated rum to the top and lit it. After the oohs and aaahhhs I stirred the sauce and ladled it onto the plates. Delicious! Great recipe. Will try it with raspberries next time. Thanks Evelyn!
Tasty simple sauce. I used frozen strawberries that I thawed slightly (I chopped them up a bit with my veggie chopper). Mine were sour so I used more sugar. For the lemon, I juiced it and added to taste. It is easy to add lemon and sugar as it starts to warm. Mine needed to cook longer because the berries were frozen.
Very Delicious. I make this now for my homemade Cheesecake. Only thing I would try, like a few others on here, is to lower the amount of Lemon juice. It was slightly acidic. But other than that, this recipe is very good, and looks great on a cheesecake :D thanks for posting :D
