Strawberry Mint Sauce

Randy Mayor
Yield 1 3/4 cups (serving size: about 1/4 cup)
This luscious strawberry sauce is delicious drizzled over vanilla ice cream, pound cake, or biscuits. If you can find lemon verbena in local markets, it is a great substitute for mint. Use any type of good-quality local honey that's available.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups chopped strawberries (about 1 pint)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
