Taste from the past – Strawberry sauce recipe from 1923

Easy Strawberry sauce recipe from 1923

(Transcribed from The Advertiser, Montgomery, Alabama July 26, 1923)


Strawberry sauce, which can be served with boiled rice or cottage pudding, is good, say food specialists in the United States Department of Agriculture. It is a good way, too, to use the wild berries that are sometimes brought home from a tramp through the meadow.

½ cupful butter

1 cupful powdered sugar

½ to ¾ cupful strawberries

Rub together the butter and the sugar, then add the strawberries, a few at a time, beating until the fruit is mashed. If you object tot the curdling of the sauce,which affects the appearance only, rub the white of one egg thoroughly into the butter and sugar before adding the berries. This protects the fat from the action of the acid of the berries.
