Strawberry Topping

(Çilek Sos)

Strawberry Topping
500 gr strawberries, washed, cut in 3 or 4
1/4 cup sugar

If the strawberries are tasteless and hard to eat, make this delicious Strawberry Sauce as a topping for ice cream:) I do this all the time.

Place strawberries in a pot and sprinkle the sugar on top. Heat it up for a minute, then turn the heat down to medium-low. Cook for about 20 minutes. Let it cool down a little bit. Pour into a jar with the lid and keep it in the fridge.

You can have it as a topping for the strained yogurt or ice cream.
