  • 2 Cups Fresh Strawberries
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 2 Tsp Fruit Pectin
  • 1 Tbs Butter
  • 1 Tsp Lemon Juice


  1. In a large mixing bowl mash strawberries. I find it that a potato masher works well. You could use a food processor if you want, just be careful not to make it a puree. You want it to have some strawberry chunks in the sauce.
  2. Now get a large deep skillet and put it on medium heat.
  3. Melt butter being careful not to burn.
  4. Then add in the fruit pectin and mix well.
  5. Add strawberries and bring to a boil for one minute.
  6. Now pour in the sugar and mix well.
  7. Cook 4 minutes stirring continuously.
  8. The sauce will become thick with the strawberries being soft.
  9. Remove from heat and pour the sauce into a container and store in the fridge.
