Wash and hull the strawberries. Pat dry the excess water with a paper towel. (Cut large strawberries in half.)
Put the strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice in a deep dish, and toss briefly.
Microwave for 2.5 minutes at 500 W without plastic wrap or lid.
Lightly mash the strawberries with a spoon, and mix.
Microwave again for another 1-1.5 minutes without plastic wrap.
Once it has cooled down a bit, refrigerate until chilled and it's done!
I used this sauce in Recipe ID: 741734 "Hot Strawberry Milk with Condensed Milk." The cute pink milk is so comforting!
I also used it in Recipe ID: 590568 "Easy Strawberry Yogurt Milk."
Story Behind this Recipe
I created this recipe when I wanted to have a small amount of strawberry sauce for yogurt or ice cream.
- The dish will be really hot right after microwaving, so please be careful. - The microwave at our house is 500 W. Adjust the cooking time depending on your microwave. - Use a deep dish so that the sauce won't boil over in the microwave.
