Chunky Strawberry Sauce

banner

Sometimes, you don’t want a smooth sauce; you want little chunks to give it more personality. As always, taste the sauce for sweetness before adding all the sugar, as the sweetness of strawberries can vary.

Ingredients

  • 2 pints fresh strawberries, hulled
  • ¼ cup sugar, plus more if needed
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Large pinch of kosher salt

Method

Cut two thirds of the berries into quarters and purée them in a food processor until smooth. Strain through a medium-mesh sieve, discarding the seeds. Cut the remaining berries into ½-inch pieces. Stir them into the purée along with the ¼ cup sugar, lemon juice, and salt. Taste for sweetness. Add more sugar if necessary. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

In Advance

The sauce can be made 2 days in advance.
