Quick Strawberry Sauce

When Juli recently made crepes, I decided we should have some strawberry crepes for dessert.   The filling for the strawberry crepes was pretty simple - fresh, sliced strawberries mixed with a bit of cream cheese - but I also tossed together a quick strawberry sauce to top the crepes.  

It's easy to make and quite good, and it makes an ample amount of sauce.  

We had more than enough to top the crepes, so I used some of the leftover sauce as an ice cream topping over the next couple days.  It was really good either cold or when warmed in the microwave for a minute or so.

Quick Strawberry Sauce

yield = approximately 2 cups of sauce

1              pound fresh strawberries, hulled and finely diced
1/2           cup granulated sugar
1              tablespoon freshly-squeezed lemon juice

Combine the diced strawberries, sugar and lemon juice in a medium saucepan and heat over medium heat.

Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook about 20 minutes or until the strawberry bits have partially broken down and the strawberry juice, lemon juice and sugar have formed a thick syrup.   Serve.
