This is really easy to make and quite delicious It's different from the sweet and sour sauce you buy in the grocery store In that it doesn't have any vinegar in it. Strawberries are the main ingredient and the flavour comes through and it really makes for a delightful taste. It's great on chicken and spring rolls.
Note: I left out the molasses in my first batch and I actually liked it better because the taste of the strawberries was more predominant.
