Love this sauce! Used it over chocolate crusted cheesecakes and it was a hit. Also varied it using 1/2 blueberries and 1/2 strawberries, equally delicious, if not more so! Thanks for sharing.

Very easy and very yummy. I added a heaping teaspoon of cornstarch as I wanted a thicker sauce to put on cheesecake.

So simple yet so delicious! Very easy to prepare! This recipe maintains the fresh taste of the strawberries and isn't overly sweet. I served with french vanilla ice-cream.
