Bowl of strawberry sauce topping

A Tangy Dessert Topping

This fruit sauce is thickened and sweetened with dried pineapple pieces, which are a delicious complement to the strawberries. It’s a treat over pancakes, waffles, vegan ice cream, frozen banana chunks, or—best of all—with cooked cornmeal, sliced bananas, whole strawberries, and nondairy milk. Now that’s a breakfast! Canned pineapple does not give the same result in flavor or texture. If you can only find dried pineapple rings, cut them into small pieces before using them.
