This recipe is stolen from Our Best Bites. It really is delicous and can be used for any sauce topping. We started with waffles and syrup but I added it as part of a homemade salad dressing recipe from my sister-in-law Cherie the other day (the salad dressing I cut the oil in half and used olive oil and replaced the raspberry sauce with strawberry and it was delicious on our lettuce berry salad)
1 pint strawberry
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp almond extract
Clean and hull strawberries. You can cut them up but there is really no need. Combine berries, sugar and extract in a medium sauce pan. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring and breaking down the strawberries constantly.
After 5 minutes remove from heat and let cool. I have a plastic blender so I let cool completely or the heat pressure will make it explode inside your blender. Blend on pulse until it is smooth. Use over golden butter waffles with homemade maple syrup.
