Strawberry Star Anise Sauce

  • FAST
  1. 2 pints strawberries, thickly sliced
  2. 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
  3. 1/4 cup sugar
  4. 1 teaspoon finely grated orange zest
  5. 1 tablespoon Cointreau
  6. 2 whole star anise pods
  1. In a medium saucepan, combine all of the ingredients and crush lightly with a potato masher. Bring to a boil, then simmer over moderate heat until the strawberries lose their bright red color, about 2 minutes. Strain the sauce through a fine sieve into a heatproof bowl, pressing hard on the solids to extract as much of the juice as possible; refrigerate until chilled. Transfer to a pitcher and serve with the Strawberry Shortcake.
Serve With Strawberry Shortcake.
