Strawberry Reduction Sauce

I was all about the angel food this week {and whipped cream!}. We’re swimming in strawberries, thanks to some good sales, so I wanted to make strawberry sauce to complement the angel food. 

The recipes I found online were loaded with sugar, which is a shame because strawberries are already perfectly sweet! So I added more berries and cut back on the sugar, and it’s still really sweet. I used two teaspoons of sugar, but I honestly wonder if it needed any sugar at all. One of the recipes called for 5 tablespoons! There’s just no need to use that much when Mother Nature is offering up her natural sugars.  

Here’s my recipe. You can also substitute other types of berries for the strawberries!
