Strawberry Sauce with Hemp Seeds

Strawberry Sauce with Hemp Seeds

After going to the strawberry field for the third time this year, I finally reached the point where I just couldn’t eat any more fresh strawberries and my freezer was just too full to accommodate¬†any additional ones. So, there is another point that I reached: making a strawberry sauce for the first time!

I must say, for an experiment it turned out being quite amazing! I even got Felix’s first reaction to be “Mmm…!”, so I think I can proudly present the recipe!

I wish I could say that the sauce is ridiculously rich of Vitamin C (as are strawberries) but, unfortunately, most the of it, if not all, gets lost in the process of cooking… ūüôĀ … Luckily, that has no impact on the sauce’s great taste! :)…

Negativism aside, this recipe is full of fiber (which we all love!) coming from the strawberries, dates and the apple pectin, which I used instead of canning sugar. Another bonus: no refined sugar! I have became a great fan of dates sugar (dry dates powder) and so far it has been¬†working great for me! Dates taste great and¬†are a good source of potassium, magnesium, manganese. For having¬†nutty taste, I added hemp seeds… rich of protein and unsaturated fats. ¬†

You can have it on a toast, with yogurt, with ice-cream… or like I had last: just with a spoon!
