I'm always looking for a way to stretch fruit; we never seem to have enough of it for topping sundaes. Excellent flavour and texture; served it over strawberry ice cream and it was a real hit! Made for Spring PAC 2010.

This was simple to make and tasted so good! It reminded me of the strawberries that Luby's serves on their strawberry shortcake, except the juice is thinner in this recipe. It made a lot, so I have but most of it in the freezer for later use. Made for PAC - Spring 2008.
