Strawberry Sauce with a Classic Hint of Orange
Corrine Kozlak, author of Strawberries: 50 Tried & True Recipes, shares with us her recipe for Strawberry Sauce with a classic hint of orange.
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
3 tablespoons water
1 1⁄2 tablespoons butter
1⁄3 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon orange liqueur
2 1⁄4 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
Dissolve sugar in 3 tablespoons water in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add butter, and cook for 4 minutes or until golden brown. Add orange juice, stirring until smooth. Stir in orange liqueur, cooking until mixture reaches syrup consistency. Add strawberries, stirring gently to coat. Cook until jam consistency is achieved.
For a thinner sauce, puree mixture before adding to desserts such as ice cream.
