I got this recipe from Our Best Bites. It is yummy! We've eaten it on cheesecake, ice cream (even cookies and cream), in our lemonade (also from Our Best Bittes), pancakes (didn't go over as well as I had hoped), and Matt and Ray will eat it by the spoonful. It freezes really well, too. It is kinda hard, but well worth the effort. ;)
1 pt. strawberries, hulled and halved or quartered if they are large
1/3 c. sugar
1 tsp. almond extract (I prefer it with vanilla)
Combine strawberries, sugar and extract in a medium saucepan. Simmer over medium heat. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly, breaking up berries with a wooden spoon. Remove from heat and cool slightly (if you have a glass blender) or a lot (if you have a plastic blender). Pour berries into blender and pulse until it reaches your desired consistency.
P.S. I was just teasing about it being hard.
