Sugar pulls the juice out of the berries, making a bright and sweet sauce. Enjoy it with shortbread, angel food cake, pancakes, or just to eat on its own with yogurt or whipped cream.
- 2 quarts fresh strawberries, cleaned, hulled and sliced
- ½ cup white sugar
- Place the strawberries in a large bowl. Sprinkle the sugar evenly over the berries, and stir to evenly coat all of the fruit. Let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
