Strawberries and Maple together!! Flavors made to be the "IT" couple! This strawberry sauce is lightly sweetened and flavored with maple syrup to give desserts a gentle kiss of maple sweetness. Spoon it over or under cake, frozen dessert, fruit salad, pancakes or French toast. Or, stir it into hot cereal to both sweeten and add flavor!
