500 grams of strawberries, fresh or frozen
2 tablespoons sugar
I can condensed milk
2 1/2 cups thickened cream
Cook the strawberries and the sugar in a saucepan until a jam like consistency forms (approx. 15 -20 minutes). *ele Tip – If you are using fresh strawberries you might need a tablespoon of water while the berries are cooking. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
