Fresh Strawberry Syrup (no added sugar)

P1030992Wondering what to do with all the strawberries you picked this spring? You’ve already made jam, pies, and strawberry shortcake!

Well, here is a special treat- perfect for using up fresh strawberries that might be getting a little too ripe!

This syrup/sauce is sweet and slightly tart, sweetened only with pure maple syrup. (Making it a much healthier option than store-bought syrups.)

Pour this over your pancakes or waffles for an outstanding breakfast! We loved the taste, and doesn’t it look beautiful, too? (Later this week I will post my very favorite (healthy) pancakes that we enjoyed with this syrup!)

Ruby- Red Raspberry Sauce

P1030347I love, love raspberries. Don’t you?? I am eagerly awaiting the summer harvest from our own raspberry bushes that are just beginning to bud new green leaves for the season. Yay!

Here is a raspberry sauce that is fresh and lovely in every way. And let me just tell you…it is GOOD!

Tart, sweet, and bursting with raspberry flavor, it also boasts an absolutely striking red color, making it quite pleasing to the eye as well- giving you an absolutely beautiful, refreshing sauce.

Really, I don’t think you could go wrong with this one. You MUST try!
