Handmade Christmas Challenge - Strawberry Sauce :)

This weeks
Handmade Christmas Challenge is
 Homemade Strawberry Sauce.
Recently, the supermarkets have had the little
red berries on special - too tempting to pass up.
I bought some, he bought some, I bought some
and so on - till we had a shelf full of them in the fridge.
I hunted for recipes to get rid of the glut,
and found this treasure - it's soooo easy to make!
This would be a great little gift -
even looks Christmassy (is that a word?)

Homemade Strawberry Sauce
250g Strawberries
juice of 1 lemon
1/2 cup castor Sugar
1 tbsp brandy or liqueur
(I left this out for the littles)

Blend all ingredients in a blender
until shiny and sugar crystals have disappeared.
The recipe says to press through a coase sieve,
but I did not bother with this.
Use within a few days or freeze.

Only problem now is keeping up with the icecream supplies.
We have also been using it in milkshakes and on pancakes.

If you want to play along, pop over to
This week there are some great labels there
for your Strawberry Sauce too!

(I know, I can't fix that white bit -
it's too late and I can't be bothered
maybe the blog fairy will fix it for me)
{Thanks Blog Fairy Bianca
