By sieving the sauce you'll remove the seeds. This isn't really necessary (we just like it better that way). But if you don't mind seeds, you can remove this step (and the recipe will even become better).
When strawberries are in season, you'll only need ¼ cup confectioner's sugar to give it the right flavor. Because strawberries are so sweet then. But if you're before or after season, strawberries tend to be less sweet and you'll probably need some extra. So taste to be sure of the right sweetness.
This sauce can be kept up to 2 days in the refrigerator. Do you want to keep it a bit longer? Store it up to 2 days in the freezer.
Wash the strawberries and hull them.
Put half of the strawberries in the blender and mash them. It can also be done with a fork or a mixer.
Push the pulp through a fine sieve (the seeds will not get into the sauce).
Mix the sugar through the sauce.
The other halve of the strawberries are quartered and then sliced in half. The pieces of strawberries are mixed through the sauce.
Chill for about an hour and it's ready to serve.
