This strawberry sauce is a great way to use up your strawberries or frozen strawberries and you can preserve it to last for ages!

Hull and roughly chop 500g of fresh or frozen strawberries.

Add them to a saucepan over low heat along with sugar, lemon juice, and salt.

Cook over low heat for around 15 minutes until the strawberries begin to break down. Frozen strawberries may need 2-3 minutes extra.

Balance a sieve over a bowl and carefully tip in the strawberries.

Push them through the sieve with a wooden spoon or spatula, rubbing them along the bottom of the sieve.

Take your time doing this to get all the strawberry pulp you can.

Scrape the bottom of the sieve to get all the pulp that's accumulating there.

Pour the finished sauce into clean jars.

The finished coulis will store in a sealed jar in the fridge for up to two weeks. Alternatively, it can be frozen for up to 3 months

This tasty sauce is the perfect accompaniment to vanilla ice cream.
