Strawberry Sauce

Ok, so this is the Strawberry Sauce I used for my Mini Cheesecakes. I really love strawberry cheesecake and so I thought I would make this sauce to top my cheesecakes, along with my Blueberry Sauce. This recipe is extremely simple. I adapted this recipe from Ina Garten's Raspberry Sauce. It only takes about 10 mins, or so to complete. This Strawberry Sauce is perfect on anything!! Pancakes, ice cream sundaes, maybe even use it to make strawberry milk instead of those artificially colored pink strawberry syrups you find in the ice cream topping section of grocery stores or what I used it for, cheesecake. It has a nice fresh strawberry flavor and it does taste a bit like the strawberry preserves so make sure you buy a strawberry preserve that you enjoy using. It's a very good go-to recipe if you have leftover strawberries as well! Here's the recipe!!

Strawberry Sauce (Makes about 3/4 cup)
1 cup of chopped fresh strawberries
1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp water
1/4 cup Strawberry Preserves

Place the chopped strawberries, sugar and water into a small saucepan. Place it on the stove and cook over medium heat until it begins to boil. Then cook the strawberries for about 5 mins, or until the strawberries are almost completely broken down. Once broken down, pour the mixture into a food processor along with the 1/4 cup of Strawberry Preserves. Process the mixture until it is smooth. Pour the finished mixture into a bowl and let cool in the refrigerator.
