Recipe type: Brunch
Cuisine: American
Serves: 6
  • 1-16 ounce package frozen sliced or whole unsweetened strawberries (thawed)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup real maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Thaw the strawberries and bring them to room temperature. Place the entire package in a sieve colander and mash the berries with a large spatula or wooden spoon. Strain the juice from the strawberries into a mixing bowl and then pour into a glass measure. You should have about 1 cup of juice.
  2. If you cannot get a cup of strawberry juice, try microwaving the berries for 30 seconds to warm them and allow the juice to come out. (You may also add 1-2 Tablespoons of water to make 1 cup). Place the mashed berries in a separate bowl. They will be added back in later.
  3. In a medium saucepan, combine 1 cup strawberry juice and 1 cup granulated sugar. Bring the mixture to a boil for 1 minute, constantly stirring until slightly thickened.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract, maple syrup, and the mashed strawberries. Cool for 10-15 minutes and serve over pancakes, waffles, or ice cream.
