Strawberry Sauce w/ Vanilla Ice Cream


I generally make this with strawberries and then transition to raspberries, blueberries and then cherries. I prefer mint with the raspberries and thyme with the cherries, but like all things it is a matter of personal preference.

  • 1 qt strawberries
  • ¼ tsp vanilla
  • ¼ C honey
  • 5 leaves basil
  • 3 grinds of black pepper
  • pinch of salt
  • vanilla ice cream
  1. Wash and hull the strawberries and place in the bowl of a food processor
  2. Add the vanilla, honey, black pepper and salt
  3. Just before serving pulse the berries to make a chunky sauce
  4. Spoon over the vanilla ice cream and garnish with torn basil leaves
