With my last quart of strawberries I made a batch of strawberry topping this morning. The recipe is from Justin’s mom…just a basic fruit topping recipe…for pancakes, waffles, ice cream, etc. You could use it with any kind of fruit. Maybe I’ll make some blueberry topping to freeze when I get more blueberries. This is very good and very simple. Although it is on the sweet side. I’ll use less sugar next time. And you could probably add a little lemon juice to brighten up the flavor a bit.
Serve on pancakes, waffles, shortcake or ice cream. You can also mix it into plain yogurt.
**You can also just mix fresh strawberries and honey (to taste). Let them sit until the strawberries start to soften. Then mash with a fork or potato masher. No cooking required. You can heat the topping before serving if desired.
