Recipe by PanNan
READY IN: 40mins




  • Combine 1 lb strawberries, wine, sugar, lemon juice, orange zest, orange juice, and star anise in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat, cover, and let rest for at least 10 minutes.
  • Remove the star anise and transfer the mixture to a blender. Blend until smooth.
  • Place a fine mesh strainer over a bowl, and using a rubber spatula, press the puree through the strainer. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • When ready to serve, pour the sauce into a medium size saucepan. Bring it back to the boil over medium heat. Lower the heat, and simmer until it thicken slightly - about 3 - 4 minutes. Gently stir in the remaining 1/2 lb hulled and quartered strawberries and cook just until the strawberries are heated through (about 3 minutes). They should still be firm.
  • Serve the warm strawberry sauce over a generous scoop of ice cream.
