Strawberry Sauce

DSC00261DSC00280

Living in southern California, we are spoiled by our great weather and abundant organic produce.  Making a crappy salad is actually hard.  On weekends, ladies would descend upon our farmer’s markets in their Lululemons and grab their fill of antioxidants packed greens.  I would head to my favorite strawberry vendor from Oxnard and whip up a batch of strawberry sauce.  I love making berry sauces because I can add alcohol.  Blueberries pairs beautifully with gin and strawberries with grand marnier.  Drizzle it over vanilla ice cream, layer it with custard in a trifle or spoon it over scones, the options are endless.
