This recipe is a favorite of mine because, it’s my mom’s! ❤ Which means it’s not actually mine… 

Growing up, I remember my mom making a number of things with all berries, but especially strawberries. Like, Strawberry Juice, Strawberry Jam, and this Strawberry Sauce, which is super delicious, super quick, and super easy to make.
