  • In a small saucepan over medium high heat, combine the strawberries and sugar and cook, stirring occasionally until the strawberries begin to release their juices and start to boil.
  • Reduce heat to low and continue cooking the strawberries uncovered, stirring occasionally, until a thick sauce forms, about 15-20 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and bring to room temperature. Use immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.


Tip: Make a double batch of this strawberry compote, so you have some to save and freeze for later!
