Hello Dotties! Here’s an easy little recipe for strawberry sauce that is sure to delight.


  • ¼ cup caster sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 250g punnet of strawberries, halved
  • ½ cup strawberry jam

You’ll also need:

  • canning jar
  • twine
  • free sticker printed onto adhesive sheet (download it here)
  • free tag printed onto kraft paper (download it here)


1. Place the water and sugar in a saucepan. Stir, over low heat, until the sugar has dissolved.

2. Add the jam and strawberries and stir for another couple of minutes. Set aside to cool.

3. Place in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Refrigerate.

I made a small batch for use as a Valentine’s Day treat (come back in 2 weeks for part 2!).

You could do it in bulk for use as a wedding favour – just increase the quantities and lose the ‘sweet & saucy’ tag. You’ll also need to make sure you research proper canning techniques so that it won’t spoil if guests don’t use it immediately.
