Strawberry Sauce

It's strawberry season!!  Mr. T and I picked up a couple of pints this weekend and had a slice of angel food cake with a strawberry sauce on top.  It was awesome.

Strawberry Sauce:

1 pint of strawberries
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 sprig of mint, chopped

Cut the large strawberries in half. In a saucepan over medium high heat, combine strawberries, sugar, vanilla, lemon juice, and mint. Cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Use a potato masher and mash about 1/3 of cooked berries. Store in refrigerator.
